“An armed republic submits less easily to the rule of one of its citizens than a republic armed by foreign forces. Rome and Sparta were for many centuries well armed and free. The Swiss are well armed and enjoy great freedom. Among other evils caused by being disarmed, it renders you contemptible. It is not reasonable to suppose that one who is armed will obey willingly one who is unarmed; or that any unarmed man will remain safe among armed servants.” – Niccolo Machiavelli, “The Prince” (1532)

Chi Sigma Lodge #546 J2

An item of interest to NYS OA Collectors recently ended on eBay, a Chi Sigma Lodge #546 Jacket Patch. You can tell this is the J2, because the Greek Letters Chi Sigma are embroidered on top of the arrow.

Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction for the next few months.

The seller started this at only $ 0.99; 9 bidders and 13 bids later, the final sale price was over $ 153.00.

If you missed this one, you can find another Chi Sigma Lodge #546 Jacket Patch with a BIN of $295.00 on eBay right now.

I think $ 153 was a bit low, but may be right for the times.
