A couple of years ago I posted about a Buckskin Lodge #412 Gold Mylar OA Centennial Flap S81 which saw a very limited release.

Brian Petrowski added in the comments – the Gold border version was used as an award to those that have gone above and beyond with service to the lodge. These were only available and given out by the Lodge Advisor, they were not available for sale.
The stats are:

This is still a need of mine if anyone has one for trade.

Look Back – Buckskin Lodge #412 Neckerchief N8

Two years ago I was posting about a then new neckerchief from Buckskin Lodge #412 submitted by Brian Petrowski.

Here is the new Buckskin Lodge neckerchief Buckskin Lodge and the fleur di li are ghosted but you can see them in this image. The arrow and white line are embroidered. This is the neckerchief that new brothers that complete their Ordeal will receive in their kits.

Buckskin Lodge #412 New Embroidered Neckerchief Arrow Left?

Back in late 2007, I wrote about the then new N7 from Buckskin Lodge. As you can see below, it had an arrow pointing right.

As you can see in the scan, both the white band and red arrow are embroidered. The previous issue, the N6 had an embroidered arrow, but the white line was silkscreened. In earlier versions the white ‘line’ was a ribbon, sewn to the neckerchief.

I recently picked up a similar neckerchief which appears to be of the same vintage, but has an arrow facing left. This was the old method for showing Brotherhood, but this is too modern to be from that era.

Was this an error reorder of the N7? Private Issue? Who knows the rest of the story?
