Need Help Identifying lapel Pin - Possibly Mason Pin?

I'm hoping someone can help me identify this pin. Looks like a Masonic pin, but nothing similar to anything I've seen before. Any help would be appreciated.

Excellent, thanks.  That will be helpful for everyone.  What's on the back, anything that might help identify?  

Any 9k, GF or anything?

From what I can tell it's an Oddfellows pin.  The enamel is chipped so that will devalue it, and if it is not gold I'm afraid it won't be worth very much.  Still of interest to collectors anyway.  

 

 

There's one available in the US right now, along with another one.  About $26 USD for the pair of them.

Recently one that looks very similar to yours sold for about $10 USD,  if you are interested,

I think that exhausts all my thoughts on the matter.   :-)

Thanks, it's the same exact same pin, right down to the patent year on the back.
