Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 Updated S35 and New Regular Issue Flap S61

At the TOR in Williamsville I picked up a few of the regular issue flaps from Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159. When I compared them to the ones in my collection I realized it is a different version than what I previously had.

Here is the S35.

Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 S35 MVE

there are minor differences in the Red lettering and the blue of the water. I would ADD MVE 120X51 mm to the description.

And here is the newer version:

Look Back – Suanhacky Lodge #49 Adult Ritualist Dangle X54

Four years ago, I was posting about one of the final issues from Suanhacky Lodge #49, one of a series of 4 patches they put out for their ceremonial teams.

 

The Grey or Silver bordered version pictured below is for adult members who performed on one of the Ceremony Teams as a youth.

The scanner washes out the border color a bit, but it is grey or silver in color.

Anyone have one of these available for trade or sale?
