Ohio and West Virginia Conclaves

For those of you whose collecting interests range outside of New York State, here is an OA Conclave Resource for you. Ed Evans recently announced on Patch-L that he had put together a web site for one of his collecting interests Ohio and West Virginia Conclaves.

I get lots of calls about Ohio and West Virginia conclaves. Most want to know what a patch from a certain year looks like. Since that OA conclaves site has not been updated in years, I just threw up a quick website with images from West Virginia and Ohio. If it leads to a trade or two that’s even better. It’s not professional, but its a good reference.

Anyone know of any other good collector references?



“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson
