Update to Previous Post – Unlisted 417 Neckechief?

In a previous post, I speculated on whether a neckerchief I had acquired was a Section Conclave Issue or on unlisted Lodge Contingent item to that conclave.

I did have a couple of responses, Dave Scocca wrote “The Conclave Handbook Volume 1 (Frank Dingwerth and Chris Jensen) pictures this neckerchief as the Area 2H issue for 1959. The checklist indicates that a neckerchief (but no patch) was issued.”

Separately Jim Clough had a number of 2-H Conclave items in his last sales list. The pictured neckerchief was listed as the 59 2-H Conclave Neckerchief. This was the earliest conclave item from 2-H in his list.

I have not had any direct repsonses from any 2-H members or collectors.

While it is likely this is a conclave piece, I will continue to look since the previous 2-H Conclave issues (1956-58)and post (1960 and later) all specifically mention “conclave” on the neckerchief, only the 1959 does not.

Time will tell.


“We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.” –author Ayn Rand (1905-1982)
