State of the Hobby – Hanigus Lodge #47 R3

An auction recently ended for an old tough issue from New York State. Hanigus Lodge #47 merged with Chappegat Lodge #15 to form Mide Lodge #15 in 1957. They never issued a flap, so even their odd shapes command a premium price.


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

There was just a single bidder who knew what he wanted and who took the patch down for the minimum of $ 899.99

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Issues.

The 2017 Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave was hosted by Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 and held at their Elk Lick Scout Reservation. The theme was “The Order of the Arrow’s Got Talent”.

Chris Carlson advised:

7 patch set, only patches made for the event. Each lodge was represented by its color listed in the stars on the patch. Only sold 15 complete sets. Will not be easy to put set together. Host lodge was yellow being Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 hosted at Elk Lick Scout Reserve which might be hardest one to come by as there were more host lodge people than any other lodge, and we were limited to 1. Silver boarder was a “section delegate” patch.

Todd Rogers advised:

The 2017 NE-4A Conclave had seven different patches. One border color for each of the lodges in the section and one for section officers. Due to an ordering issue they only ordered 70 per color and didn’t order them in quantities sufficient to enable the sale of full sets with most attendees only receiving their lodge’s border color patch.

Here is the version for the Host Lodge:

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Yellow Border Pocket Patch

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Yellow Border Pocket Patch

and here is the full set, the border color matches the background of the lodge star.

I currently need all but the Red Border if anyone has any available for trade or sale.

Section NE-4A contains the following Lodges:

  • Wyona Lodge #18
  • Langundowi Lodge #46
  • Ah’Tic Lodge #139
  • Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont Lodge #165
  • Gyantwachia Lodge #255
  • Woapeu Sisilija Lodge #343

“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” —Justice Joseph Story (1833)
