    Default Help In Identifying A Medal...

    I have no clue as to what this medal represents or where it is from.
    ( It was only $1.00 ) On the reverse is a motto: "RHAB EL KARMA"
    in a semicircle from wing tip to wing tip....

    Possibly fraternal or masonic?? Anyone have an idea?

    Steve,

    This looks like something from the Art Deco era. It also looks like it could be influenced by the Egyptian Revival era. I would say non-military related pendant from the 1920's-30's...

    However, the "karma" reference would be of middle-eastern origin and probably relates to something from that culture.

    Bump...

    Was thinking more along the lines of Shriner's/Knights of Columbus/Freemasons, etc.
    I know what 'Egyptian revival' stuff from the 20's looks like - even crudely made
    copies - but this ain't it.........

    Almost certainly Masonic/Shriner.....may even be from a defunct lodge.

    Steve, you may be interested in these photos I found online. There was no information given, but the object is a belt buckle of some kind with the word "Germany" written on the back in pen.
