The picture below shows a larger front and back view of this Old Enameled Metal Massachusetts Seal or Coat of Arms Jewelry Pin. The pin is not dated but it is old. It is made of a gold colored metal but it has not been tested for gold. The pin is in a shield shape and there is a left facing eagle at the top. There is a scroll edge and a scroll frame inside with a Native American Indian in the center. There is a pin on the back and a hook probably to hold a charm. There is a red banner at the bottom that reads in Latin as follows:

Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem

The pin measures about 7/8'' x 1''. It appears to be in mint condition as pictured.

Below here is some additional information on the Massachusetts motto:

Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem is a Latin passage and the official motto of the United States Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The phrase is often loosely translated into English as “By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.” The literal translation, however, is “she seeks with the sword a quiet peace under liberty.” The “she” in question refers to the word manus from the full phrase manus haec inimica tyrannis ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem, which means “this hand, an enemy to tyrants, seeks with the sword a quiet peace under liberty.”

It was written c. 1659 by English soldier statesman Algernon Sidney, who was an opponent of Charles II and who was later executed for treason. The motto was first adopted in 1775 by the Massachusetts General Court (the official name of the state legislature) and applied to the temporary seal of Massachusetts. On December 13, 1780, the legislature approved its application to the current Great Seal of Massachusetts.
