New York OA Trader Turns Six!

The first post on the New York OA Trader was made on January 26, 2004 with this mission statement.

The purpose of this blog is to publish information about new Lodge and Chapter issues from New York State OA Lodges, the discovery of older uncatalogued issues, warnings about fakes, spoof, and reproductions and other information/musings that may be of interest to other NY OA Collectors (or at least amusing to me).

It’s now been six  years and over 2166  posts later, a community of traders, readers, commentors and friends have grown along with the blog. 

Hopefully the blog will continue to grow and report the NYS OA news for many years to come.


Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years.
