Suanhacky Lodge #49 Sticker

Came across this sticker which was produced by Suanhacky Lodge #49.  I’m not sure when the sticker was produced, the sticker uses the design of the 49 S2 or S3 which was from the mid-1970’s.  The same design and color scheme was used in the 49 N2 from the mid-1980’s.

Anyone know when this sticker was issued?
