Rare Large Vintage 14k Solid Gold Masonic Shrine Past-President Claw Pin/Brooch

Rare Large Vintage 14k Solid Gold Masonic Shrine Past-President Claw Pin/Brooch
Here is a nice piece for sale that is in great condition considering it's age. This piece measures 3 7/8 inches long from the top of the swords handle to the bottom of the claws. The sword measures 2 inches wide. The brackets under the sword measure 1 1/4 inches wide and 5/16 of an inch tall from the top of the leaves to the bottom stem piece under the bracket. The bracket that holds the Egyptian guy measures 1 inch wide at the widest point and 9/16 of an inch wide under the claw area. The star measures 1/2 in diameter. The claws measure 2 1/4 inches wide at the widest point from each other. The gap between the claws is 11/16 of an inch. This piece is marked 14k and it has been tested. The clasp for the pin works normally. This piece weighs 31.7 grams. I found some other claws about the size of these and weighed them. I came up with 8 grams for the claws. As a rough estimate I would say there is about 23.7 grams of 14k gold on this piece which would be $535 just in gold. This is such a unique piece and would never be considered as scrap. This is a one of a kind piece that should honestly be in a Museum.
As a reminder.... The weight of the gold is an estimate and it could be more and it could be less. Please take this into consideration before
