Suanhacky Lodge #49 Tamanend Chapter N1 New Variation Discovery

Gene Berman sent along word of a previously unlisted variation of a Suanhacky Lodge #49 Tamanend Chapter N1 variation.

I had checked this one off as a need since I had one in my collection, which we will now call the N1a.

The Blue Book Description is:
Tamanend N1 DBR P WHT RED SSC,

and I added Orange Background.
Tamanend N1a DBR P WHT RED SSC, Orange Indian & background.

Gene notes:

I picked up what I thought was a duplicate Tamanend Chapter neckerchief on Ebay and was surprised to see the Indian was a different color (orange versus yellow) then the one I already had. I would guess they were ordered twice since they are professionally made which to me is different than the home made things that by their nature will vary.

I’ll call the yellow background the N1b

I need the yellow if anyone has one for trade or sale.

Look Back – Suanhacky Lodge #49 OBV Chevron X45

Five years ago we were writing about a new issue from Suanhacky Lodge #49, the X45.

Suanhacky Lodge #49 recently issued a limited patch, a gold bordered chevron, sporting the OBV sashes on white felt and a view of the Tower of Friendship overlooking Crystal Lake at sunset. There were reportedly 75 patches issues. A green bordered version with a larger run is scheduled to  be issued as part of the Honors Weekend in May.

Look Back – Suanhacky Lodge #49 Death Flap 1930 – 2013 S74

In April 2013, we were celebrating the birth of Kintecoying Lodge and the ‘death’ of the various GNYC predecessor lodges. Suanhacky Lodge #49 had a bit of fun with their death flap.

Suanhacky was the only lodge to inject a bit of humor into their final flap; the Stag is cooked!
