Happy Tenth Blog Birthday To Me – NYOA Trader is Ten

Cake Ten Years ago today on January 26, 2004 the NY OA Trader Blog was born on Blogger with the following 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).

The blog is now pushing 4000 posts and my aim is to continue to provide information about new and older issues from your lodges through scans, trades, comments and encouragement from my readers. Thousands of issues have been showcased on this site and its archives are a treasure trove of information on New York State OA issues.

While life sometimes gets in the way, and posting may be sparse at times, I hope to continue this blog for many years to come.

Without my readers, commenters and contributors, I would not have been able to share a fraction of the information available on the site. thanks to you all.
