The Benevolent Protective Order of Elks metal markers come in many sizes and shapes. The metal markers above include the two 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 is Latin referring to the genus and species for the American Elk. Below that is a lodge number.
The metal marker above is similar in style, as it carries the elk and the clock and the lodge number, as opposed to the badge-like marker below, that only has the lodge number.
