State of the Hobby – Loon Lodge #364 F1 First Flap

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.


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

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

Area 2-G 1956 Conclave Neckerchief?

Looking deep into my Inbox, I’ve come across a number of scans from Mark Eddy relating to Central NY and Area 2G and its successors.

One of the items in the email was an image of what he advises is the 1956 Area 2-G Conclave Neckerchief. HE advises this has been confirmed to him by an old Lodge and Area Chief.

2-G 1956 Conclave Neckerchief?

2-G 1956 Conclave Neckerchief?

The neckerchief looks like it has an error which was likely never corrected. You can see the pocket patch shown below.

You can see that this conclave was called the Area 2G Third Conference and the neckerchief is screened with Area 2 & 3 Conference. It looks like the & replaces the G and there is a large gap between the 3 and Conference which could have been intended as 3rd.

Historically Area 2-G issued a pocket patch and a neckerchief for each conclave during this decade.

What do you think?

Area 2-G 1955 Conclave Neckerchief

It has been debated on this blog whether the neckerchief shown below was issued for either the 1953 Area 2-G Conclave or for the 1955 Area 2-G Conclave.
Mark Eddy looks to put this speculation to rest. He advises that he has confirmed that this neckerchief was issued for the 1955 2-G conclave which was confirmed to him by the contemporary Lodge and Area Chief.

It seems likely that scrap leather was used for these, so they may well exist on other colors as well.

There is also a 1791 error version.
