Check with your local Masonic Lodge. I remember kids wearing Knights of Pythius jackets back in the early 60s. From the little bit you've showed us, I'm wondering if it was tied to some scholastic award that the Masons and other fraternal orders presented to selected members of the local High School graduating class.

Wow thank you so much!  Found this in a thrift store in PA.  Never heard of this fraternity before but I am certainly researching it now. :)

I just found this medallion.  You can see the front side; the back side is exactly the same but with a Bible. I would like to figure out where this came from, it should be a real challenge.  Thanks!
