Mystery Mason 'Jewels' Made By Revere?

In the popular movie "National Treasure" a band of treasure hunters searches for a glorious cache of riches hidden centuries ago by colonial Freemasons, including a few of the Founding Fathers.

All of it was a bit of Hollywood fun, but in Concord, some modern day masons think they may actually have stumbled on a real-life treasure linked to none-other than the illustrious silversmith Paul Revere, who once served as Grand Master of the Freemason's Grand Lodge Of Massachusetts.

"We're excited. Proud. It links us again to the heritage that the lodge has," said Douglas Ellis, the senior deacon at the Corinthian Lodge in Concord, who said that about a year ago two members were doing some cleaning at the lodge and stumbled on a bag of antique-looking "jewels," the decorative medals Masons wear for ceremonial occasions.

"They thought they were just old regalia that had been tossed aside," said Ellis. "They were in a box up in a store room and we were like, 'Oh my. Look what we have here.'"
Suspecting that the jewels might be pretty valuable, last month they asked a visiting Mason from Spain who is something of a silver expert what he thought of the cache. He confirmed their hunch that the jewels very well may have been created by Paul Revere himself.

For all you Mason enthusiast.

what gets me is that the freemasons with all their secret history and whatnot, would have forgotten that Revere made the jewelry. Its cool they found these though

now if they could just remember what they buried on Oak Island and where the Holy Grail went....

When Revere was Grand Master (and at other times), he made gifts of sets of these jewels to a number of lodges. Over the years, lodges move, merge, go out of existence, etc. Their property moves, goes to another lodge, is held by Grand Lodge for future use, etc. As a result, sometimes these things go astray.

My own lodge experienced a loss of some records when the long-serving Secretary passed away and no one in his family knew where he had put certain things. It happens.

Yeah we have had a few lodges in Kalifornia go under and or merge.
We found some very interesting items from parchments from the late 1800's to battle grade templar ceremonial swords from passed on members.
Alot of neat history.

Is the angel without a face common? If so what does it represent?
