Could this be the first-ever documented fist bump?
Melissa at Blue Ribbon Salvage shared a treasure trove of amazing Masonic / fraternal badges and medallions. This one’s by far my fav.
UPDATE: Reader s0mewhereny clarified that the Woodmen are indeed fraternal not masonic. Which makes the Masonic Fist Bump actually a Fraternal Fist Bump.
Sure, it’s probably just a snapshot of what is probably an elaborate secret handshake that would put the NY Mets to shame. But still, it’s cool to see a relatively modern phenom in classic illustration.
Get it, “good order“?
