Nearly five years ago I wrote about the 1957 Area 2-G Conclave.

… they are simple designs and do not indicate the host lodge or camp where it was held.

They are still needs of mine, does anyone have either the patch or neckerchief available for trade or sale?

Hanigus Lodge #47 1957 Leather eL1957

An auction recently ended on eBay for a Hanigus Lodge #47 eL1957 not currently pictured on OA Images. The three rounds issued by the lodge all command in excess of $ 1,000. The event issues significantly less although not often seen.

Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction for the next few months.

There were 13 bids from 7 unique bidders before the hammer cam down.

If the winner reads this blog, I’d like a good scan or photo as well as getting one to OA Images.

Area 2-J 1957 Conclave Neckerchief

conclaveGene Berman had done some research on the founding of Area 2-J. His research showed that Area 2-J was organized in 1956 on a experimental basis. In November, 1957 the five GNYC lodges as well as Chappegat 15, Hanigus 47, Shinnecock 360, Buckskin 412 met at Camp Ranachqua, Ten Mile River Scout Camps in Narrowsburg, NY. This appeared to be a one-time event or planning meeting.

There was a neckerchief issued for the event:

Not sure why only the totems for the 5 GNYC lodges appear on the neckerchief.

Thanks to Tom Wadnola for the scan.
