Look Back – Horicon Lodge #246 Neckerchief Identification Update

Back in February 2007, I was posting an identification aid for the 3 known varieties of the Horicon Lodge #246 N1.

Based on the current descriptions in the Blue Book it is virtually impossible to distinguish the a, b, & c varieties of the 246N1 without having them side by side (by side). In this post I will suggest some changes to the current Blue Book descriptions, in order to make it easier to identify the variations.

These were the three proposed descriptions:
N1a BLU P WHT RED SSC design similar to F2; Raccoon perched on arrow BLU Lockstitch DOR/DBR highlights in Raccoon, LBL lakes
N1b BLU P WHT DRD SSC; LBR Lockstich, LBR/DBR Raccoon, LBL Lakes
N1c BLU P WHT DRD SSC; BLU Lockstitch DOR/LBR highlights in Raccoon, DBL lakes

and here are thumbnails of the three neckerchiefs, clicking on the thumbnail will display a larger version.

Anyone else have one that doesn’t fit the new descriptions?

“Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” –George Washington (Farewell Address, 1796)
