State of the Hobby – Hanigus Lodge #47 R3 Redone

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. I had posted about one that ended last summer, but this one did even better.


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 $ 1,250.00

“Harmony, liberal intercourse with all Nations, are recommended by policy, humanity and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand: neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing with powers so disposed; in order to give trade a stable course.” —George Washington (1796)
