Discovery – Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 50th Anniversary X5 Twill Varieties

I had previously commented that while I enjoyed tracking and cataloguing new issues, what I really liked about hosting this site was finding out about previously uncatalogued issues. I had acquired what I thought was a duplicate of the 417X5 a while back but had not checked it to my collection. I’ve gotten in the habit of checking twill issues to confirm I have the same twill direction and to make sure I keep the better of the two issues if mine is not mint.

On comparing the two patches, I realized that there were two distinct twill directions, Twill Right and Twill Left.

Not the easiest to see in the scan, but these is twill right.

which would make the Stats.

“Now is the seedtime of continental union, faith and honor. The least fracture now, will be like a name engraved with the point of a pin on the tender rind of a young oak; the wound would enlarge with the tree, and posterity read in it full grown characters.” —Thomas Paine (1776)
