Otahnagon Lodge #172 2015 NOAC Set 2 Red Border S33 X6

For the 2015 NOAC, Otahnagon Lodge #172 issued 4 different 2-piece sets which shared a common design, but each set has a different border color. I’ll be listing them from the most sets issued to the least issued (at least according to PatchScan).

The second set has a Red border and there are reportedly 200 sets.

2007 Section NE-2C Conclave – Conclave Royale Staff Pocket Patch?

I’d previously written about the 2007 Section NE-2C Conclave was hosted by Ktemaque Lodge #15, which was held at Clear Lake Scout Reservation.

I just came across another patch which I believe may be the Staff or a COC issue. Unlike the regular particpant issue, this one has a Gold Mylar arrow.

Section NE-3B 2014 Conclave Update Additional Pocket Patches

Another update for Section NE-3B, this time for the 2014 Conclave. I had previously written about the Section NE-3B 2014 Conclave which was held at Mount Norris Scout Reservation and hosted by Ajapeu Lodge #351. The theme for the weekend was Lumber Lenape.

In it I wrote that there were a participation patch, a conclave committee patch and a host lodge patch. I now have images of the three patches, but don’t know which is which.

First a red bordered version.

Then the White Border:

Section NE-3B 2014 Conclave White Pocket Patch

Section NE-3B 2014 Conclave White Pocket Patch

And finally a Light Gray Border (definitely not white):

Section NE-3B 2014 Conclave Gray Pocket Patch

Section NE-3B 2014 Conclave Gray Pocket Patch

Can anyone confirm the purpose of each border color?

I’ll update the original post with these images too.

The Lodges in the Section are:

Ga-Hon-Ga Lodge #34
Otahnagon Lodge #172
Kittan Lodge #364
Onteroraus Lodge #402
Ajapeu Lodge #351

New York OA Trader Turns Twelve!

OK, I’m a bit older than 12, but it was 12 years ago today on January 26, 2004 that the New York OA Trader Blog was born on Blogger, with the following mission statement.

The purpose of this blog is to publish information about new Lodge and Chapter issues from New York State OA Lodges, the discovery of older uncatalogued issues, warnings about fakes, spoof, and reproductions and other information/musings that may be of interest to other NY OA Collectors (or at least amusing to me).

Fast approaching 4400 hundred posts have been written since then with thousands of new and newly discovered NYS OA issues being shared with my readers.  I’ve added NY OA Conclave issues, NY OA neckerchief slides and belt buckles to my reporting since then.

Thanks to all of you who continue to provide information about new and older issues from your lodges through scans, trades, comments and encouragement. I hope to continue this blog for years to come.

So what is new from your lodge and do you have one to trade?

Section NE-3B 2013 Conclave Orange Border Pocket Patch

I had previously written about the Section NE-3B 2013 Conclave. Talking with Mike Shaver last fall, I became aware that there was a fourth pocket patch, this one with an Orange Border.

Not sure what the purpose of this issue was. Does anyone else know?

I’d be interested in trading or buying for the neckerchief from the event if anyone has one available.

Were there any more items issued?

I’ll update the original post with this image too.

The Lodges in the Section are:

  • Ga-Hon-Ga Lodge #34
  • Otahnagon Lodge #172
  • Kittan Lodge #364
  • Onteroraus Lodge #402
  • Ajapeu Lodge #351
