Three unique bidders wanted this neckerchief, when the hammer came down it went for $81.00.
There have been a number of New York State OA First Flaps ended on eBay. Here is one for a Loon Lodge #364 F1 First Flap. There was only one bidder for this auction, but he knew what he wanted.
The seller described it as:
Adirondack Council, upstate New York. Number 394 refers to the council, not the lodge.
Heavily restricted OA First Flap issued for only a few years before being replaced by the so called “broken neck” issue
“A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” –Thomas Jefferson, Rights of British America, 1774
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.
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.
“The truth is, all might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they ought.” –Samuel Adams, Essay in the Boston Gazette, 1771
A palette cleanser from all of the hyper-modern 2015 NOAC and OA centennial issues is a classic OA Neckerchief from Loon Lodge #364, their N1. This one had previously been listed at $ 350 and went unsold.
When the seller relisted it, he dropped the price to $ 300.00 and added a best offer option as well.
The item did sell, and with a bit of research sorting completed items by price; we can determine that the seller accepted an offer of $ 250.00. A still respectible price for this neckerchief.
“The instrument by which [the government] must act are either the AUTHORITY of the laws or FORCE. If the first be destroyed, the last must be substituted; and where this becomes the ordinary instrument of government there is an end to liberty!” —Alexander Hamilton, Tully, No. 3, 1794
One of the tougher sets from Loon Lodge #364, the P2 on a neckerchief. The 394 is not an error or misprint, but is the council number for Adirondack Council. One of these Loon neckerchiefs recently ended on eBay with the patch on the neckerchief.
Bidding started at only $ 4.99 and 9 unique bidders making 18 bids, drove the price to over $ 75.00 before it ended at $ 76.88.
