Vintage 2" long paper flag on a 2 1/2" wide metal pin for the B.P.O.E. Elks with the traditional "Hello Bill" greeting. The greeting started in 1897 at the Elks National Reunion in Minneapolis, and these are from around that time period. 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.
