Look Back – Half Moon Lodge #28 J5 or YJ1

Six years ago we were posting about a discovery from Half Moon Lodge #28 sent by Tom Wadnola.

…a previously unlisted Jacket Patch from Half Moon Lodge #28. It mirrors the design of the J3 or J4, but has a brown background rather than black. Is it a prototype or an unlisted issue? Both the J3 and J4 were Dance Team patches and were not issued in large quantities.

28J5 or 28YJ1? What do you think?

My initial inclination, is to call this the 28 YJ1 until more information can be uncovered. Can anyone provide any additional information?

Absent further information I would list this as the YJ1.
