    I would think 20th century fraternal of some sort possibly Knights of Columbus. Eric

    This is not an American fraternal form (including not for The Knights of Columbus). While it may have association with a European fraternal group, or specifically Masonic, there were and are swords presented and worn in both European academia and as civil "badges". As the scabbard is fitted for a frog, most likely worn on a sash/baldric and therefore no need for a more elaborate suspension. I'll bet on academia.

    I am sure your right, after all if it was Catholic there would be a Pope and a Knight on it.

    Actually, the Knights of Columbus swords are readily identified as a bust of Columbus. There are two variations of them The third, a flying eagle on a round pommel.
