Back to Back issues from Shu shu Gah Lodge #24 in my State of the Hobby posts from eBay. This one is for the only Vigil Flap ever issued by Shu Shu Gah Lodge.

There were 200 numbered flaps issued, when the were issued, any dues paid Vigil member could buy two. They were given to new Vigil members for a number of years until they ran out. Since most Vigil members only got 1 or 2, you don’t see these available very often.

Look Back – Suanhacky Lodge #49 Vigil Triangle X41 & X42

Just over a year ago In wrote about two new Vigil issues for Suanhacky Lodge #49.
There was a red bordered issue and a yellow bordered version.

Eddy Petersen supplied some additional information:

The red border was given to all vigils but the yellow is for those held their vigil 25 years. I believe the quantities were red border (75) and yellow border (25).
