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?

Look Back – Horicon Lodge #246 Belt Buckle

Belt BuckleSix year ago I asked, What do you want to read about? Ray Gould suggested a series on Belt Buckles from New York State OA Lodges.

This was the first one in the series but since I don’t have many myself, so if you want to see more posts on NYS OA belt buckles, send along some scans.

The first one in the series is contributed by Tom Wadnola, it is from Horicon Lodge #246. The Blue Book lists Horicon Lodge as from the merger of Tahawus 32 and Apachedotte 246 in 1955. It later merged with Mide 15 to form Ktemaque 15 in 1973.
