Oldest Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 Neckerchief?

DiscoveryRob Cunningham shares another interesting find from Ty-Ohni Lodge #95.  The question becomes is it an official issue?  If so, it would likely be listed as the N0.5.

As Rob tells it…

2 more interesting items were donated to the council historical society- one more 1952 NOAC adviser neckerchief (we thought only 3 existed but now a fourth has surfaced) and another one of the red and white neckerchiefs with the crude Ty-Ohni embroidery which we previously had thought was a one-of-a-kind item.  To date it is the earliest Neckerchief with “Ty-Ohni” on it aside from issues with patches.  Each time we acquired one of these neckerchiefs they came together so they are likely both from the same time period.

Anyone have more information on this neckerchief?

The neckerchief is a purple cloth with the R1 sewn to it.  While this would not be listeds as a separate issue in the Blue Book, it is certainly a collectible for someone in the lodge.

To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson
