Historical Wax-Seals

Below each seal picture is the name of the original Lodge.

Pictured above are historical wax-seals found on precious Masonic documents of mainly German Freemason-Lodges. These materials are now entrusted to the Prussian Secret State Archives, stored in the collection of seals is a new stock. They were purchased in 2006 by Dresdner Lodge "Zu den drei Schwertern und Asträa zur grünenden Raute" ("Along with three swords and the Astraea ) ". It was an accidental attic discovery by the members of Lodge "Zu den drei Bergen" i.O. Freiberg (Sachsen) (Saxony). Whose real treasure of German Masonic-history was hidden in 1933 due to Nazis-chastisement.

Some of those Lodges no longer exist, because Freemasons where being persecuted and many of them were murdered in Nazi concentration camps. Some of the older seals show Lodge-names, now in Poland-Territory
