Look Back – Horicon Lodge #246 Neckerchief Identification Update

Back in February 2007, I was posting an identification aid for the 3 known varieties of the Horicon Lodge #246 N1.

Based on the current descriptions in the Blue Book it is virtually impossible to distinguish the a, b, & c varieties of the 246N1 without having them side by side (by side). In this post I will suggest some changes to the current Blue Book descriptions, in order to make it easier to identify the variations.

These were the three proposed descriptions:
N1a BLU P WHT RED SSC design similar to F2; Raccoon perched on arrow BLU Lockstitch DOR/DBR highlights in Raccoon, LBL lakes
N1b BLU P WHT DRD SSC; LBR Lockstich, LBR/DBR Raccoon, LBL Lakes
N1c BLU P WHT DRD SSC; BLU Lockstitch DOR/LBR highlights in Raccoon, DBL lakes

and here are thumbnails of the three neckerchiefs, clicking on the thumbnail will display a larger version.

Anyone else have one that doesn’t fit the new descriptions?

State of the Hobby – Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Neckerchief N9

An item recently ended on eBay, the Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Neckerchief the N9. Unlike many of the Shu Shu Gah Lodge neckerchiefs which typically sell in the $20-25 range, this is one of the more seldom seen issues. This is one of several which fall into that category.

24N9

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

While there was only a couple of bids, the two bidder knew the value of this item, and the winner paid nearly $ 190.00 minimum bid amount.

My neckerchief needs from Shu-Shu-Gah include the N1b, N2, N3, N4a, N4b, & N7. Anyone have them for trade or sale?

2007 Section NE-2C Conclave – Conclave Royale Staff Pocket Patch?

I’d previously written about the 2007 Section NE-2C Conclave was hosted by Ktemaque Lodge #15, which was held at Clear Lake Scout Reservation.

I just came across another patch which I believe may be the Staff or a COC issue. Unlike the regular particpant issue, this one has a Gold Mylar arrow.
