Lot #6 of the 450 Masonic Tokens from The Walter O. Collection. We Recently received a very Large Collection of 450 Masonic Tokens and coins. This collection was one man’s hobby for over 40 years. He collected each and every one with care and attention to detail and variety. Some of them are amazing and incredibly rare and highly sought by collectors and Masons. Here is a Brief Overview : Masonic coins often raise many questions for those looking to better understand the significance of the coins themselves as well as the symbolism represented in their imagery. In fraternal culture as a whole, symbolism has always been a significant part of these organizations’ identity, especially in Freemasonry, as Masonic coins are rich with symbolism, reflecting different events and characteristics of Freemasonry that give them the priceless value they hold. There are several varieties of masonic coins and tokens, and all tokens will fall into one of the following categories: a token celebrating a particular mason, lodge or event; an initiation token showing when a Brother was initiated, passed and raised; and finally the mark mason token (or penny) which signifies a pivotal part of a Mason’s initiation. Because symbolism was so important to fraternal culture, these small coins are rife with meaning. The most ubiquitous representation of the Masons was the letter "G" surrounded by a compass and square, representing the holy geometry of God. Some tokens feature the letters "H.T.W.S.S.T.K.S.," which means "Hiram the Widow's Son Sent to King Solomon," the biblical story that must be acted out to reach the third, or Master's Degree, in Freemasonry. Additionally, many contain either Apron and gloves: These symbols stand for living with a pure heart and to keep one’s hands clean. All-seeing eye: This symbol is designed to remind Masons that God and others always see their thoughts and actions. Ashlars: You may see rough and smooth ashlars on Masonic coins. They are to remind Masons of the contrast between man’s natural state and perfection and the Level: This symbol found on some Masonic coins reminds Masons that everyone is equal before God. We have broken the set up into groups of 5 Tokens in each lot. We have put 5 Lots per night over the 18 Nights of the Spring Auctions.
