Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 Ellicot Chapter J2

Chapter issues are often avidly sought after by collectors who have completed or nearly completed a Lodge collection.  Some of these chapter issues can bring surprising prices since they are seldom seen. One of these recently ended on eBay, a Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 Ellicot Chapter J2.

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

Four unique bidders from a starting bid of $ 3.00, three of them in over $25.00, as you can see it went $ 61.00

Not one of my needs, but I do have a number of 159 issue needs including several chapter issues:

159 F1b, N2, S2e, S18 X5 98 NOAC Delegate Set Cazenovia N1

Ellicott J1a

Ellicott N2a

Ellicott X1

Niagara N1

Niagara eN1979-1

Niagara eN1979-2

Steel R1

Anyone have any for trade or sale?

Yahnundasis Lodge #465 Belt Buckle


Ranachqua Lodge #4 N4

Back from the Sakuwit Lodge #2 TOR held last Friday and Saturday.  While it suffered from low-walk in attendance, I did pick up a few needs and got to visit with old and new friends.

One of the items I picked up was a Ranachqua Lodge #4 neckerchief, the N4 which is not currently pictured on OA Images.  You can see it below.

Ranachqua Lodge #4 N4

The Blue Book describes it as:

N4 – – WHT M/C – EMB; same design as N3, but one large “W” added on either side of owl.

This neckerchief is available for trade, for one of my comparable needs.


“[G]iving [Congress] a distinct and independent power to do any act they please which may be good for the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. It would reduce the whole [Constitution] to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please. Certainly, no such universal power was meant to be given them.” —Thomas Jefferson
