GW Masonic Lapel Pin
Washington was among several founding fathers who were Masons, including Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton. The Marquis de Lafayette was also a Mason. These men exemplified freemasonry's major values--the belief in a God or a higher being, brotherhood, loyalty, charity, education, and justice. The Masons have always been instrumental in the restoration and preservation of Mount Vernon.
The gold-tone round lapel pin is 1” and features a blue and gold image of George Washington dressed with his masonic medal and apron, with the words Master Mason and the date August 4, 1753 (date when Washington became Master Mason).
