The pictures below show larger views of all (3) Old Fraternal Order of Eagles Metal Badges or Pendants with Charms in this lot. These arenot dated but they are old. All three of these were found together. The badge or medal part on each are made of gold and silver colored metals. They have not been tested for gold or silver. On the top of each of them are loops to attach to ribbons, necklaces, or chains. In the center is a gold eagle. There are (13) stars at the top, some fancy scrollwork, and “F.O.E.” at the bottoms. One has no charm at the bottom. One has a crossed feathers charm, and the third one has a staff charm. These are marked on the two sides as follows:

F.O.E.
GOLDMAN JLY. CO.
KANSAS CITY

All three of these for one price! To judge the sizes the top sections, counting the loop measure about 1-1/2'' x 2-1/2''. They appear to be in excellent condition with an aged patina as pictured.

Below here, for reference, is a little additional information about the Fraternal Order of Eagles:

The Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E.) is an international fraternal organization that was founded on February 6, 1898, in Seattle, Washington by a group of six theater owners including John Cort (the first president), brothers John W. and Tim J. Considine, Harry (H.L.) Leavitt (who later joined the Loyal Order of Moose), Mose Goldsmith and Arthur Williams. Originally made up of those engaged in one way or another in the performing arts, the Eagles grew and claimed credit for establishing the Mother's Day holiday in the United States as well as the “impetus for Social Security”. Their lodges are known as “aeries”.

History
The Fraternal Order of Eagles, an international non profit organization, unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope. The Fraternal Order of Eagles was founded on February 6, 1898. The organization was formed by six theater owners sitting on a pile of lumber in Moran’s shipyard in Seattle, Washington. They were competitors who had come together to discuss a musicians’ strike. After deciding how to handle the strike, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form an organization dubbed, “The Order of Good Things”.

Early meetings were held on local theater stages, and after taking care of business, attendees rolled out a keg of beer and enjoyed social time. As numbers grew, participants selected the bald eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles”. In April, 1898, the membership formed a Grand Aerie, secured a charter and developed a constitution and by-laws, with John Cort elected the Eagles’ first president. Touring theater troupes are credited with much of the Eagles’ rapid growth. Most early members were actors, stagehands and playwrights, who carried the Eagles story as they toured across the United States and Canada.

The organization’s success is also attributed to its funeral benefits (no Eagle was ever buried in a potter’s field), the provision of an aerie physician, and other membership benefits. The Eagles pushed for the founding of Mother’s Day, provided the impetus for Social Security, and pushed to end job discrimination based on age. The Eagles have provided support for medical centers across the United States and Canada to build and provide research on medical conditions. Every year they raise millions of dollars to combat heart disease and cancer, help children with disabilities, and uplift the aged and infirm. The Fraternal Order of Eagles is known for short as the “F.O.E.”.
