State of the Hobby – Unami Lodge R1

While I don’t really follow OA outside of New York State, one of the highest price OA items in recent memory ended on eBay, the Unami Lodge #1 R1just a few days ago.

clicking on the image will bring you to the results for the next few months.

The item was described as used, but it looks like the purchaser paid the full BIN price. Wish my pockets were deep enough to cover a purchase of that size!

What is the most you have ever paid for a prized need?

Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 Summer Conclave eX2007

Was checking out some older posts for Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 and realized I had never written up this event patch from 2007.

The patch was issued for their 2007 Summer Conclave and did not contain the lodge name or number on the design.

Look Back – Tkaen DoD Lodge #30 Section NE 3A 2006 NOAC Flap S28

Nine years ago in August 2006, we were talking about NOAC too. The 2006 NOAC was also held in East Lansing. As they have done for a number of NOAC’s, Section NE-3A put out a set for that NOAC too.

Section NE 3A also did a Section set with a common design. The first one I’ve seen is from Lodge #30 Tkaen DoD. you can see the design below:

State of the Hobby – Kamargo Lodge N-1 Neckerchief Rare Rare Rare

Stepping back from the OA Centennial and NOAC for a moment will bring us to the highest priced OA issue to sell recently on eBay, the Kamargo Lodge #294 N1.

294N1
Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few weeks.

There was only a single bidder and the seldom seen neckerchief from Kamargo Lodge # 294 was what he wanted for the price of $ 750.00.

Some folk have said that this is the 1952 Area 2-D conclave neckerchief. I think it is likely both the Conclave neckerchief and the 294 N1. Similar to the 402N1, there is no indication of the lodge name or number on the neckerchief, my understanding it was sold to Kamargo Lodge members for secveral years in addition to being available on the conclave.

“No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange, then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.” –George Washington
