What is this Mystery Ring from Syracuse?
Take a look at the photo of this ring. It was found stashed away in a suitcase in the Syracuse suburb of Solvay. The ring displays the number 22 and the letters M-O-J-A. The person who found it is searching for the meaning behind the symbols.
The mystery ring was first shared on the reddit /r/WhatIsThisThing forum. Seeing the initials, someone thought it might tie into Mount Olivet Junior Academy of Fort Lauderdale Florida, but that is likely a dead end.
Other theories get more interesting.
Could there be a Masonic connection to the ring? Members move up through masonic orders by degree. Could this ring belong to a 22 degree Mason?
In fact the ring is Masonic in origin. According to members of the reddit /r/FreeMasonry forum, the ring belonged to a member of a defunct group called the American Men of Jerusalem, Chapter 22. The organization disbanded in 1931, and a Google search turns up no results for the American Men of Jerusalem. But knowing reddit's hive mind, I suspect the person who found this right in his uncle's effects in Solvay, may be able to get some more answers about the history of the ring.
