Half Moon Lodge #28 J3 Dance Team Patch

One of my acquisitions from the Western New York Traders Association TOR in Williamsville a couple of weekends ago was a Dance Team Jacket Patch from Half Moon Lodge #28, the J3. This image is not currently on OA Images, but I’ll be sending a copy of the scan to John.

The Blue Book describes this as:
J3 RED R BLK – – GRN WWW; RED 28; 177 mm twill oval
I’d delete oval from the description, my mint version is round or certainly not off round more than 1-2 mm.
