Gift of Walter E. Webber
Watch fob in shape of key stone; inscription on back "Josiah H. Drummond. / Greenleaf Chapter / Portland, Me ./from /J.I.S." (likely initials); letters in circle "HTWSSTKS" suround an equilateral triangle that was Drummond's mark.
The fob was owned by Josiah Hayden Drummond (1827-1902). In selecting a mark as part of the Mark Degree, Drummond appears to have chosen an equilateral triangle or delta, as engraved on this fob.
