    In the lower picture the medium sized cross with the knights head is a watch fob from the Knights Templar, I believe. The fob on the left I am not sure about. The Big Cross is an American St. John's Commandery of the Youngstown chapter of the Knights Templar, I think it says 26? All Lodges are numbered. I thought these were worn on the tunic, or a colar, but I don't see a ring. I have not seen one so close to an Iron Cross before. It is usually more like a medal, or "jewel".
    The cat that owned that was Knight with them (that's what the KT means). If you know his name you might be able to do some research on it. Most lodges like to get this sort of thing back...well, in Canada they do, so they can be passed on to new members, or retired with honors for more prominent members.
    The fobs are very sought after by members. The one with the working visor I have seen before.

    ..apparently it was chartered in 1869, so the big cross may be a Founder's Medal...?

    Well...if that big cross is something to do with the founding of a new Commandery, St. John's may like to have that back. A founders medal is given to each cat that starts the Temple out, so it's rare.

    ..and no problem-o Pammy, it's nice to actually know the answer to something and give back to the forum
