Hello. I started an Illumanati thread, going from the Scientific Illumanati approach. Of course this lead to Masons (also being persecuted by the
Catholic Church during the 1600's).
Yesterday I acquired a Plate commissioned in 1957 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Grand Lodge of the Most Ancientand Honorable Fraternity
of Free and Accepted Masons of Nebraska (Grand Lodge of Nebraska A.D. 1857 Constituted Sept. 23).
This marks the Plate as 48 years old (49 come Sept. 23, 2006), very close to 50 years of age. In time alone I would suspect this to be meaningful.
It was commissioned by Kettlesprings Kilns... R. D. 1, Alliance, Ohio.
On the back it lists
Merle M. Hale (Grand Master)
Roy I. Babbitgt (Deputy Grand Master)
John E. Beaver (Grand Senior Warden)
Joseph C. Tye (Grand Junior Warden)
Carl R. Greisen (Grand Secretary)
Mark D. McCallum (Grand Chaplin) ???
C. Vin White (Grand Orator)
Harlold H. Thom (Grand Historian)
Raymond C. Cook (Grand Custodian)
Ralph M. Carhart (Grand Marshal)
John F. Futcher (Grand Senior Deacon) ???
Herbert A. Ronin (Grand Junior Deacon)
Charles H. Ninegar (Grand Tyler)
Lewis E. Smith (Grand Secretary Emeritus)
With an addition of
W. George W. Rosenlof, Chairman
R. W. Carl R. Greisen, Secretary
M. W. John S. Hedeiund, Assistant Secretary
W. Harold H. Thom, Historian
M. W. Lewis E. Smith
M. W. Fay Smith
M. W. Charles F. Adams
M. W. Herbert T. White
M. W. Merle M. Hale
M. W. Edward M Knight
M. W. Benjamin F. Eyre
M. W. Elmer E. Magee
First off, I would like to know if this is Authentic. I doubt some one would craft a fake, but you can never be to sure.
Secondly, I would like to know if any of these members listed held high positions in the outside world.
Lastly, I would like to know an estimated price value on such an item, taking into account it's age, rarity (how many would have been made, general
availability to the public, etc.) and good-excellant condition.
