The Mystical Order of the Veiled Prophets of the Enchanted Realm is an auxiliary of the Freemasons based on specific brotherhood among its members. It adopted among its regalia, the iconic Makonna, the head of the veiled Persian prophet after which it was named. This sword, bearing that image on the cross guard, dates to the early 20th century and in form, is similar to European military swords of the period. It has a 24 ¾” broad fullered blade with makers identification for Pettibone Bros. Cincinnati. It is well used with wear to the plating and some abrasions to the guard, perhaps sword blows, possible incurred in ritual use. Very rare.
