Discovery – Shinnecock Lodge #360 Shinnecock Jazz X1.7

While I had it on my needs list, I had not seen one; but Matt Schieferstein recently posted to Facebook.

Recently came across this patch…I have the red bordered one and have never seen this gold mylar one. I am thinking we have a new issue. Any thoughts??

I’d list it as:

Anyone have the GMY border for trade or sale?

The version which was previously listed was the X1.5
