"Not much to add. Discovered that the Shriners do have an Aladdins group, but can't find any info about your pin. The lamp is called an Aladdin's Lamp.
It could read GBS. Checked that and nothing comes up.
It's a pretty…"
"Robin, you didn't post a pic of the front; I can't see the "lamp on top". Please post a pic of the front.
I don't believe it's Masonic. I believe their highest ranking is 33 degrees. I can see that it's…"
