Fez Grading Guide

randomWe are proud to announce a new resources for fez collectors! After more than a year of work, we are happy to release our “Fez Grading Guide” to the world.

This guide will help any collector rate their fez on a 15 point scale. Up to five points can be awarded in three categories – condition, rarity, and age. The higher the score, the more valuable the fez!

We hope you find this guide useful. We will be using it in our correspondence with others when we are asked to value a fez, making the process a bit more transparent.

This guide will permanently reside our our Resources area.

Falling for Fezzes

fezthimbleAs 2013 begins to wind down, we find ourselves staring down the season of Fall. Just in time for this seasonal switch, we come to you with a few new additions to the collection.

First up, we have a wonderful, home made, Order of Alhambra Candidates Fez. It’s certainly worth checking out, if only for how odd it is! Next, take a step over to the new Mecca Shriners exhibit, wherein you’ll find a very early (and quite old) example of a Shriners fez from the first Shrine to be founded. Lastly, we’ve added a new social club to the mix, with the posting of the fez of a member of the Fire Square Club of New York City.

We thank you for checking back to the museum. As always, we will update when more fezzes are added to the collection!

We’re back!

fezAfter a two month hiatus, we’re back! We’ve added two fezzes to the collection in recent weeks and we are ready to unveil the additional displays. First, check out the updated AMOS section, where we have a uniquely tasseled addition from Murad Sanctorum No. 202. Then, shimmy on over to our brand new exhibit for the Queen of the South, a Prince-Hall affiliated Degree for women.

As you heard in our previous posts, things are slow a the Museum. This is mainly due to how extensive our collection has become. We now have more than 120 fezzes, representing a significant number of fraternal groups. As the collection has grown, it has become harder to source the rare and obscure pieces we need to continue with updates. As such our posting schedule is going to be more sporadic, only updating whenever we have something new to share with you.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to bringing you more fezzy goodness!

Good day loyal reader! We just wanted to take a moment and let you know that things are a bit slow here at the museum. We don’t have anything new to report at this time. So, instead, enjoy this silly fez based picture!

As soon as we have updates, we’ll be sure to post them!

March of the Fezzes

Hello intrepid reader! It’s been a little more than a month since our last update, but today we come to you with two new fezzes for your sparkling eyes!

We’ve added a new fez to the Ancient Mystic Order of Samaritans exhibit,that is quite old. Part of the fez might even pre-date the creation of AMOS, so check it out! Once you’ve gotten your fill there, a new exhibit is open in the Shriners area for Tangier Shrine. This old fez has some very unique construction techniques that are sure to pique the interest of any historian and collector.

We will continue add pieces as we receive them, but this monthly schedule of posting seems to be working out well. As always, we are continuously looking for odd pieces to add to our collection, so if you have something unique, drop us a line using the Contact page.
