This bronze marker is from what is called "The Benevolent Protective Order of Elks". They come in many sizes and shapes. This is one of their most significant symbols for the Elks Club members–the Elk, of course, and the clock with the hands frozen at the 11:00 o’clock hour when the Elks traditionally remember their members who have passed away with a solemn toast. It also carries the words “cervus alces” which in Latin refers to the genus and species for the American Elk. It also has the numbers 8, 7 and 6 at the end of each point radiating from the symbol behind the antlers head and clock.
The dimensions are: 4.75 in. H x 4.125 in. W x 1.375 in. D, 10.3 oz
