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.

Jody Tucker sent along an image of a plastic neckerchief slide from Man-A-Hattin Lodge #82 issued for its 1959 Summer Banquet.

While this would not be listed in the Blue Book based on its current guidelines, it would be collectible as a Ldge #82 event issue.

Anyone have one available?

Area 2-A 1959 Pocket Patch

conclaveBack in early 2007, I wrote up what was to become one of my first posts on conclave issues; the 1959 Area 2A Conclave.

At the time I was more concerned with a leather slide and trying to determine if it should be considered a Nooteeming Lodge issue or a Conclave issue.

George Jennings confirmed that it was in fact a conclave gift to all in attendance from Nooteeming, the host lodge.

One item that was not pictured in that post, was a pocket patch also issued for the event.

Thanks to Tom Wadnola for the scan.  I’ll add this to the earlier post as well.

Despite the recent formation of Area 2-J, it appears that the GNYC lodges were in attendance at the event.

According to the OA Section List, the following lodges were part of Area 2-A at this time.

  • Mide Lodge #15
  • Skanondo Lodge #64
  • Horicon Lodge #246
  • Shinnecock Lodge #360
  • Buckskin Lodge #412
  • Nooteeming Lodge #443
  • Munsi Lodge #444

and the GNYC Lodges transitioning to Area 2-J

  • Ranachqua Lodge #4
  • Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge #24
  • Suanhacky Lodge #49
  • Man-A-Hattin Lodge #82
  • Aquehongian Lodge #112
