Hardest NY OA to Collect – Shu Shu Gah Lodge Part 2

As I said in my previous post on the hardest Shu Shu Gah Lodge OA to collect, most of the flaps are obtainable.  I would have to extend this to virtually all of the other patches as well.

The single-most difficult patch from the lodge is likely the R1.  While many think it was issued for the 1948 NOAC,  it was actually issued for a Lodge conference/conclave and should rightly be classified as an event issue.  It is however the first known patch from Shu Shu Gah Lodge.

There are one or two others that are a bit tougher due to smaller runs, but are not unobtainable. 

The X5, was issued for the 1989 National OA Philmont Trek, it was issued both on a hat and off.


The last group I will tackle with my last post for Hardest Shu Shu Gah Lodge Issues to collect are neckerchiefs.
