Masonic Mark Master's Medal; oval sheet of ivory with painted design of an eagle flying between the legs of a compass; suspended from beak by a blue ribbon is a delta (or triangle) encasing the letter "G"; around the border encircling the design appears a mnemonic "HTWSSTKS" associated with the Masonic Mark Master degree.


In the Masonic Mark Master degree, a Mason chooses a symbol to represent himself - often something that relates to his profession or a symbol from Freemasonry. Some men had these emblems made into badges that could be worn.
