Look Back – Ranachqua Lodge #4 L2.5 and newly discovered L2.6

Nine years ago we were showing a previously uncatalogued ‘leather’ neckerchief slide from Ranachqua Lodge.

John Tegtmeier, recently questioned the L2.5 from Ranachqua Lodge as described in the Blue Book as he had a variant. While I had the L2.5, I guess I never sent a scan along to John Pannell (since remedied).

Ranachqua Lodge #4 L2.5

John advised, that his was on green leather(?) and provided the following scan.

Ranachqua Lodge #4 L2.6

As you can see, not only is the background different, but the detail is all in red.

What uncatalogued gem from your New York OA Lodge do you have to report?

State of the Hobby – Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 25th Anniversary Neckerchief N8

An item recently ended on eBay, the Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 25th Anniversary Neckerchief N8. Unlike many of the Shu Shu Gah Lodge neckerchiefs which typically sell in the $20-25 range, this is one of the more seldom seen issues.

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

While there was only a single bid, the bidder knew the value of this item and paid the $ 100.00 minimum bid amount.

My neckerchief needs from Shu-Shu-Gah include the N1b, N2, N3, N4a, N4b, & N7. Anyone have them for trade or sale?

Kittan Lodge #364 2015 Fellowship eR2015

Another event patch from a NY OA Lodge, this one is I believe the First event issue from Kittan Lodge #364. It uses a dye sublimation process so it looks more like a photo than an embroidered patch.
