Look Back – Sisilija Lodge L1

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.

State of the Hobby – Munsi Lodge #444 P2 on Neckerchief

I’ve always liked the classic pie-shaped patches and even more when on the original neckerchiefs. You don’t see new ones them much these days as we seem to have moved away from neckerchiefs for everyday uniform wear. A year ago I wrote about a Munsi Lodge #444 P1 neckerchief, here is the P2 which recently ended on eBay.

There were three unique bidders who made 4 bids looking to bring this item home, but in the end, there can only be one as the hammer came down at $ 43.00.

State of the Hobby – Kamargo Lodge #294 A2

In Central New York, Kamargo Lodge #294 was the classic small lodge with few collectors. In addition many of their early patches were restricted and in some cases, Ordeal members received a round but did not get a flap until they sealed their Brotherhood.

Here was an auction for on of the classic arrowhead-shaped patches from Kamargo Lodge #294, their A2.

I contacted Gavin M. a long time member of the lodge and who owned a complete Nick Stoner and Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea Lodge #418 collection. HE advised that he had nver seen that slide nor has any other 418 members he checked with.

Does anyone have any further information on this slide?

It sold for the Buy It Now Price of $ 27.95.
