An interesting auction recently ended on eBay for a Neal Slide from Half Moon Lodge #28.
while I have previously seen Neal slides for a couple of other NY OA Lodges, including #19 and # 477, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen the Half Moon version before. As you can see below at least a couple of bidders felt they had to have it.
Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.
The bidding for this one was spirited five unique bidders making 6 bids, with four bidders haging in a more that $ 40.00. Two bidders were left near the end, when a $ 200.00 bid was made, but the bid leaders proxy bid was high enough that he won for $ 202.50.
While I don’t follow Neal Slides, I don’t remember seeing any Neal slides selling in this range before.
