Onondaga Council Seneca Face Whatsit?

questionmarksmallHere is another Whatsit? from Mike Hinman. This one is a round patch with a Seneca False Face Mask and the words Onondaga Council hand written on the patch.

seneca-faceThe Senaca Mask was used by Senaca Lodge #394 out of Elmira, NY as well as Ga-Goh- Sa Lodge #547 from Olean, NY.

Onondaga Lodge #516 which served Onondaga Council was headquartered in Syracuse and used the Iroquois Longhouse as their totem.

While the Seneca were one of the tribes of the Iroquois, there are no known issues from Lodge #516 using this design.

Can anyone shed any light on this?  A district issue perhaps?
