State of the Hobby – 1959 Area 2-D Conclave Neckerchief

An Area 2-D Conclave Neckerchief from 1959 recently ended on eBay and it went for a higher price than many other NY Area Conclave Neckerchiefs of similar vintage.

2-D 1959 N
Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

There were 8 unique bidders for this neckerchief, three of them pushing the price well past $ 50.00 until the hammer finally came down at $ 67.00.

The OA Section list has the composition of Area 2-D at that time as:

Sisilija #19
Half Moon #28
Wakpominee #48
Mahikan #181
Mohawk #267
Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha #268
Loon #364
Onteroraus #402 (to 2-H before 1961)
Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea Lodge #418
Nooteeming #443

You can see my posting on all of the issues from the 1959 conclave here.
