What A Difference Three Years Makes!

Finished watching an eBay auction for a Half Moon Lodge #28 2009 NOAC Neckerchief.  I think that this is the highest priced NYS issue for the 2009 NOAC.

Two bidders wanted this and one was willing to spend just over $175.

But what a difference three years can make.  A similar Neckerchief from the 2006 NOAC, got no respect.

A $100 opening bid and no bidders to be found.

I guess the 2 bidders for the 2009 Neckerchief already have the 2006.

Looking for a bargain?  the 2006 Neckerchief was relisted for $80.00

Clicking on any of the images will bring you to the auctions for the next few months.

Will the neckerchief sell at $80? Why or why not?


“The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world. The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!” – Theodore Roosevelt
