State of the Hobby – RANACHQUA Lodge #4 S30 Vigil flap

Here is an example of a recent flap which did not see wide distribution, The Ranachqua Lodge S30 Vigil flap. There seems to be a group of bidders which is very aggressive on completing their Ranachqua Lodge collections.

Here’s another Ranachqua Lodge 40th Anniversary Neckerchief currently not pictured on OA Images. It is not the best picture, but at least you can see what one looks like.

Ranachqua Lodge #4 40th Anniversary Neckerchief N7a & N7b

Identification Aide

OA Images does not currently show both versions of the Ranachqua Lodge #4 N7a and N7b and I think the description can use improving.

The N7a is described as
WHT M/C SSC design similar to F1-2 with 40th ANN logo on stump; BLU sky

Think we should add Blue and Orange in Sky and Orange Highlights to the description.

The N7b is described as N7b WHT M/C SSC design similar to F1-2 with 40th ANN logo on stump; BLU & YEL in sky; MVE

Perhaps change Blue and Yellow in to Yellow inn Sky and Highlights

State of the Hobby – Ranachqua Lodge Wulowachtauwoapin Chapter N1

An auction recently ended on eBay which had me scratching my head a bit. The auction was one with a poorly written title “Order of the Arrow Neckerchief. The description did contain the Chapter name – WULOWACHTAUWOAPIN.

WULOWACHTAUWOAPIN was a chapter of Ranachqua Lodge #4.

4 chap n Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

The bidding on this was very spirited, 11 bidders made 22 bids driving the price up to over $ 216.00 before the auction ended. More importantly there were 5 unique bidders still in it at $ 140 or higher.

While this is a rarely seen chapter issue from a merged lodge, based on the known collectors of NYC OA issues I would have expected this to sell in the $50-100 range. Typically for these sorts of items while the supply is low, there is also not very high demand.

Does anyone know why this one went so high?

Look Back – Ranachqua Lodge #4 New Neckerchief N15

Eight years ago in June 2007, we were posting about a new Lodge neckerchief from Ranachqua Lodge #4. Ranachqua Lodge #4 since merged with the 4 other GNYC Lodges to form Kintecoying Lodge #4 in April 2013.

John Tegtmeier previously had shared the sewout of the new Ranachqua Lodge neckerchief tentatively designated the N15. The neckerchief are now in, and in the scan at least, there are no discernible differences. John advises the Black Cloth and Green Piping represent the Lodge colors.  John further advises “Run of 100, produced by Stadri Emblems.”

Kintecoying Lodge #4 & Ranachqua Lodge HS1

Kintecoying Lodge #4 in conjunction with the Ten Mile River Scout Museum has issued their first jacket patch and historic flap set.

The Kintecoying Lodge #4 and the Ten Mile River Scout Museum commemorates A Legacy of Service by issuing this unique fully embroidered 6-patch set composed of Kintecoying’s First Jacket Patch and 5 historic flaps, one for each of the legacy lodges.

The set consists of a beautiful solid embroidered Pentagon shaped backpatch showing the map of the five boroughs of New York City, the imposed totem of where each of the five historic lodges were located by borough, and the totem of the new lodge, the Peregrine Falcon on the left. Each flap features as its centerpiece the first patch ever issued by each of the five respective lodges. On the rest of the flap are the dates of the lodge’s existence, the name and number of the lodge and the theme which is “A Legacy of Service.”

Here is a scan of the Ranachqua Lodge issue:

Identification Aid – Ranachqua Lodge #4 S21 & S22

Roy More recently added a comment to the OA Blue Book that the Ranachqua Lodge #4 S22 was a redundant or duplicate issue of the S21. This is not the case, as you can see in the scan below. The S21 is on top and the S22 below.
