3.Large Antique "Royal League" "Past Archon" medal and ribbon. Ribbon reads "??????? Council No. 24 Chicago. The question marks represent the top part that I cannot make out. It has 7 characters, and starts with a C or G. The medal has a very unique design to it, although I'm not sure about its history, I was told its from around the antique to art deco period. The top section of the back, under the pin, is stamped "Pat. 2066969". Appears to be gold plated or filled, and shows some wear to the back, but is in good condition for its age. Biggest flaw is that someone had it duct taped to a piece of velvet, and there is duct tape glue on the back of the bottom portion of the medal. I did not want to try to remove it. Weighs 66.5 grams.
4.Vintage fraternal medal with star shaped bottom and crown top. I was told this is from an organization called the Royal Arcanum.

Medal appears to be gold plated or filled, is in great condition and doesn't really show any wear. Weight is 27.3 grams.
