Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont Lodge #165 40th Anniversary GMY Flap S36

Todd Rogers sends along word of two new 40th Anniversary flaps from Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont Lodge #165.

The lodge has put out two 40th anniversary issues. I’ve attached scans. The SMY border, semi-ghost, is a trader issue. They had them readily available at the TOR and if you made a $100 FOS donation you got one in a set which included 5 CSPs and the Flap, however you could get these without the donation. The GMY border one came only as part of a $1,000 FOS donation set.

Not sure if or when they may be available outside if the FOS Donation set.

The GMY Bordered version is pictured below:

“Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” – James Madison, Federalist No. 46, 1788
