Tkaen DoD Lodge #30 Prism/NEXT Flap S40 Update

I posted about this Tkaen DoD Lodge #30 Prism/NEXT S40 flap back in October 2016.

the PatchScan data confirms that 55 were made by Shelby Patch company last August. The design appeared to be identical to that of a Prism Flap issued by Occoneechee Lodge #104, not sure if the used the same manufacturer.

Look Back – Buckskin Lodge #412 Lodge Executive Committee Dangle R21

In January 2012, I was posting about a series of rounds issued by Buckskin Lodge #412.

Here are scans of a few new issues from Buckskin Lodge. These are similar to the national issues with the exception of the Buckskin Tab in place of the fleur di lis. The four position patches are Lodge Chief, Little Lodge Chief, Chapter Chief and Lodge Executive Committee.

The patch does not contain the Lodge name but does show the Lodge Tab design.

New York OA Trader – The Teenage Years

It was 13 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).

Now thirteen years later and fast approaching 4600 posts much has been written since of the thousands of new and newly discovered NYS OA issues I’ve tried to shared with you my readers and followers.  I’ve added NY OA Conclave issues, NY OA neckerchief slides and belt buckles as well as a a few posts of more general collecting interests 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 many more years to come.

Please keep sending the scans and photos of new issues and discoveries from your NYS lodges even if it just a good story to share about why that patch was issued.

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