Section NE-3A Home of the Northeast Region Chief Jacket Patch

Here is an item issued by Section NE-3A provided by Matthew Crance. A back patch created for our section being the Home of the North-East Region Chief in 2006 – Jon Fuller. Jon was from Tkaen DoD Lodge #30.

There have been a number of flaps issued for the various Region Chiefs over the years. This is the only backpatch issued for that purpose that I’m aware of. The other oddity is that it does not mention the year or the Region Chief’s name.

Anyone have one for trade?

Fake – Ona Yote Dance Team Jacket Patch on eBay

Ray Gould has pointed out a new fake on eBay. The seller is from Germany. According to Ray;

Please include a post oin your blog to inform those that read it that the seller patch–world (Germany) is producing fakes and attempting to pass them off as real. His example of the #34 dance team patch is a clear fake (fully embroidered) and may even be a 3″ round (instead of a jacket patch). The auction has been bid up to $150+. Looking at his feedback, it appears that he has given refunds to those who have been dissatisfied with receiving a fake (especially when purchased under the belief it was authentic). He has kept all bid activity private (usernames are completely hidden and not scrambled like normal auctions). I notified a friend who I suspected might bid (he was under the belief the item was authentic and had placed a significant bid). Please spread the word.
The seller has other Scout patches for sale, but this appears to be the only one from New York.
Dave Scocca advised of a Nentico Lodge #12 Fake from the same seller a few days ago.
The real item is a twill jacket patch. A picture of the ‘real’ patch is shown below. The image is of the patch in my collection, which I provided to John years ago.
