State of the Hobby – Hanigus Lodge #47 R3

An auction recently ended for an old tough issue from New York State. Hanigus Lodge #47 merged with Chappegat Lodge #15 to form Mide Lodge #15 in 1957. They never issued a flap, so even their odd shapes command a premium price.

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

There was just a single bidder who knew what he wanted and who took the patch down for the minimum of $ 899.99


“Among the features peculiar to the political system of the United States, is the perfect equality of rights which it secures to every religious sect.” —James Madison (1820)

  1. Hi Bill-

    Nice piece.
    Interesting thing is the image appears a little odd.
    The border (upper left) from about the 9 o’clock position to the 10 o’clock position looks like it may have been re-touched…
    Is it just me?

    Best regards-
