“If it were to be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws — the first growing out of the last. … A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.” –Alexander Hamilton, Essay in the American Daily Advertiser, 1794

“The state governments have a full superintendence and control over the immense mass of local interests of their respective states, which connect themselves with the feelings, the affections, the municipal institutions, and the internal arrangements of the whole population. They possess, too, the immediate administration of justice in all cases, civil and criminal, which concern the property, personal rights, and peaceful pursuits of their own citizens.” –Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833

State of the Hobby – ONTERORAUS Lodge #402 BROTHERHOOD NECKERCHIEF N1.5

An Onteroraus Lodge Neckerchief auction recently ended on eBay for an early 402 neckerchief and related Neal slide.


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

Not sure what drove the bidding here, the neckerchief or the Neal slide. Bidding started at just $ 8.00, but 4 bidders made 17 bids before this one ended at just over $ 128.00. Three of the bidders stuck in there at over $ 120.00.

The Neal slide looks like it was altered to include the Brotherhood slide. Not sure if any of the bidding interest was for the slide rather than the neckerchief.

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.
