Hi Becky: Thanks for reading our blog. Your Odd Fellows membership certificate sounds interesting. Unfortunately, it is unethical for Museum staff to comment on the value of antiques (see our previous post about the reasons why - http://nationalheritagemuseum.typepad.com/library_and_archives/2009/07/the-question-we-cannot-answer.html). Maybe another reader will have some expertise to share? Or you could pursue an appraisal at an auction house in your area. Thanks again for reading our blog and commenting!

I have an Independent Order of Odd Fellow Membership Poster in thw Original frame, copyrighted by Joseph ASdams in the year 1907, Published by J. Adams Co. Indianapolis, Ind. It has color graphic of various symbols. The poster and frame is 32" height x 26" width. A name and information was never filled in. The frame is very detailed. Does anyone know the aproximate value?
