Section NE-2B Neckerchief Variations

Back in the dim ages on 2007, I wrote about an undated Section NE-2B neckerchief. Based on the lodges listed on the neckerchief, it had to be from a period dating from 1982-1988. The neckerchief I posted about is pictured below.

This version has a Blue background and states Section IIB

I recently came across a variation, this is on a lighter blue cloth and states Section NE-2B.

Can anyone confirm which came first and what years they were available?
