    The man who owned this apron obviously had this apron from then and when he became Master of the Lodge, he removed those rosettes and replaced them with the levels, which are a symbol of the Worshipful Master or a Past Worshipful Master.

    I would happily make you a fair trade for that beauty, even with a W&B of my own.

    Wyckoff Lodge #247. It's been a long time. I have a W&B Masonic razor that needs a bit of restoration. I'll post when complete.
