State of the Hobby – Loon Lodge #364 First Flap F1

HAven’t seen one of these on eBay recently, a first flap from Loon Lodge #364. The #394 on the flap is/was the council number of then Adirondack council. While the flap is by no means mint, it is a tough one which is shown by the bidding.


Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

Bidding started at $ 50.00 and four bidders drove this used first flap up to $ 580.00, with two bidders left at the end.

Not sure if this is the ‘current’ price for a Loon First flap, as I have not seen one sell on eBay in recent memory.
