This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#SIGN111 - Rare Early MWA (Modern Woodmen of America) Paper Flag on Pin

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the Modern Woodmen of America. The Modern Woodmen of America is one of the largest fraternal benefit societies in the United States. It was formed in January of 1883 at the by Joseph Cullen in Lyons Iowa. The original group only accepted "white males" between the ages of 18-45, and only in what they considered to be the 12 "healthiest" states. You were not allowed to be from a large city either.  Certain professions were prohibited too. This strange fraternal created a large life insurance provider over the years including investments and banking. The organization itself is still a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society. These are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master boxes, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known.  They say "MWA" and have the society logo on them with an axe and gavel. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but these are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them, so we would suggest ordering early.

Back in the day, when a visitor came, they told them to go talk to Brother Billy Goddard which is how it all started. From there it spread to Elk lodges all over the country where it has become a traditional greeting. These early ones are very rare and in great shape for their age.
