State of the Hobby – Kintecoying Lodge 4 Gold Mylar Merger Committee s2

An auction recently ended on eBay for a Kintecoying Lodge #4 Transition Team Flap S2.
I had written about the Gold Mylar bordered flaps here.


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

There were just 2 bidders on this flap which started at $ 119.95. The auction ended at $ 129.50. When they have appeared in the Lodge TOR auction, they generally sell in the $ 125-150 range.

Kintecoying Lodge #4 Mis-bordered Charter Member Flap YS1

Ian Pinnavaia sent along a scan of a mis-bordered version of the Kintecoying Lodge #4 Charter Member Flap the S1. Kintecoying Lodge #4 held its Day One event in April 2013 to mark the merger of the 5 GNYC Lodges and the creation of the new combined lodge. As part of the festivities, the new charter member flap design was revealed and put on sale for attending lodge members. The 5 rays from the sun represent the five founding lodges.

Ian sends along a misbordered version he uncovered. The White bordered version (rather than SMY) was never ordered by the lodge and is not an official lodge issue, By Blue Book convention, it would be listed a a Y issue.

“He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man… The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people.” –Samuel Adams

Kintecoying Lodge #4 Centennial Chenille Prototype YC1

Ian Pinnavaia sent along a scan of a prototype version of the Kintecoying Lodge #4 Centennial Chenille C1.

…when we were getting the centennial chenille rounds made we (I) paid for a sample with a red scrim and a white scrim to see which would look better. The computer mock up looked good either way, but once stitched out the red scrim blended too much with the chenille and we went with the white scrim in the production run. In theory the first white scrim sample isn’t any different than the other ~250 we ordered as we didn’t change anything. The red scrim, only one exists.

“I often note with equal pleasure that God gave this one connected country to one united people — a people descended from the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in manners and customs, who by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side through a long bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.” —John Jay (1787)
