Michikinaqua Lodge #155 R1

Despite only listing the misspelling as printed on the Michikinaqua Lodge #155 R1, this lucky eBay seller found himself a gem.

The seller described the patch as Vintage/Original Michikinaoua O.A. Lodge 155 Patch.

As you can see below, this did not stop people from finding it.

155R1

The bidding started at only $ 9.99, and there were 4 unique bidders with bids over $ 2,000.

Previous sales were in the $ 4500 – $ 5,000 range.  Did the misspelling or the times bring down the sale price from previous samples?
