Suanhacky Lodge Rockaway Chapter X2

Identification Aide

This one is currently not pictured on OA Images, but I’ll look to add the image there too.

During the 1960’s Rockaway Chapter used these generic Seahorse felts as Chapter issues. There are two versions, the X1 (6 inches tall) and the X2 pictured below was four inches tall.

The Blue Book describes it as:
X2 WHT – GRN – – felt; 4″ seahorse;

Anyone have the 6 inch version available for trade or sale?

Northeast Region OA 2001 Jamboree Region Chief Issue

For the last couple of decades, typically for each National Event (NOAC and Jamboree’s) there was a Northeast Region OA Patch issued. In addition to the basic patch, the current Region Chief typically has a similar patch with a different border color which he gave out while at the event. For the 2001 Jamboree, the shield-shaped patch is shown below.

Area 2-J 1963 Conclave Neckerchief

Area- 2-J was formed circa 1957 and was made up of the metro New York City Area Councils. In the early years, they only met every other year. There would not be a conference/conclave in NOAC years.

Below is an example of the neckerchief issued for the 1963 Area 2-J Conclave.

I also understand that there was a leather issued for the event, not sure if it was a slide or pocket patch. Does anyone have either the neckerchief or the leather one available for sale or trade?

You can find links to other New York Area Conclave issues on this page.

Order of the Arrow Handbook Checklist Updated

oahbook2As many of you may know, one of my side collections is Order of the Arrow Handbooks. I maintain an online OAHB checklist of the ones I have and need.

Since circa 1996, the easiest way to identify the edition of the handbook is to look for the name of the National Chief on the title page.

Looking to confirm if two more recent OA Handbooks were actually issued for these years and if so, I’m looking to purchase or trade for them.

2011 National Chief Jonathan Hillis
2014 National Chief Nick Dannemiller

Can anyone confirm if they have an OA ?Handbook with these National Chiefs?

The Pocket Patch is still a need of mine. Anyone have one for trade or sale?
