All I can ask is Why?

While reviewing closed auctions, I came across an auction for a 2004 NOAC issue from Amangi Nacha Lodge #47.  I have just one question why would a lodge issue a patch with only 6 made?

47 6 made

I’m not sure how this furthers the lodge program.  I’d think as a member of the lodge, there would be no reason to collect their patches, because I could never complete a set.  Why would they exdpect perople to continue to buy their new issues?


“It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that syren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? … For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.” –Patrick Henry
