A Tale of Two Flaps – Amo’Chk Lodge #339

Hardest NY OA To Collect

Its been a while since I wrote one of these posts, but two recent auctions on eBay reminded me of the topic.  The Lodge for this post would be Amo’Chk Lodge #339.

In my opinion, the three toughest issues from the lodge would be 2 flaps and a neckerchief.

The first flap, but not the First Flap would be the the Silver Bordered S2 issued for the 25th Anniversary.

The bidding on this one started at $ 9.95 and there were three bidders in it at $ 150.00 until the hammer rang down at over $ 185.00.

The other tough flap from this lodge is the Amo’chk S3, issued for the Bicentennial back in 1976.  It has a tri-colored border and also recently appeared on eBay.

This one started at over $ 250 and gathered no interest.  I suspect if it had been offered at $ 150 it would have ended in the $ 150 – $ 200 range.

What I think is the last toughest item is the 339N5, which was issued for the 1979 NOAC.  Of course you have both 339 and NOAC collectors interested in this and is was probably a very small run.
