(Please view all pictures carefully as they are part of the description. Penny is for size reference only.) Modern American Fraternal Order - Founded in 1896 in Effingham, Illinois by William B. Wright and others. The Order paid sick, disability and death benefits. Reportedly had 1,000 members in the late 1890s.[215] According to the December 1, 1910 by-laws of the Order membership was open to "acceptable white persons between the ages of sixteen and fifty-five years, of good moral character and of reputable business." Social members did not have benefits and could not be elected representatives to the Orders governing bodies. Beneficiary membership was denied to people occupied in a number of professions including manufacturers of gun powder or other explosives, seamen, professional athletes, saloon-keepers or soldiers in times of war. Those who engaged in "immoral practice or improper conduct", consumed alcohol or narcotics excessively or used profane language at Lodge meetings were liable to be reprimanded, suspended or expelled from the Order, pending trial. While the Order was open to people without reference to creed, faith or politics the Orders officers included a Supreme Chaplain at the national level and Chaplains at the subordinate level. Subordinate Lodges were forbidden from conducting business on Sundays.[216] It was apparently defunct by the mid-1920s.[217] PAYMENT AND SHIPPING INFO Payment We accept Paypal.
