For those of you who may not be familiar with it, the most extensive virtual collection of OA issues is on John Pannell's www.oaimages.com The website currently contains over 36,000 images from 768 different lodges! Each Lodge is organized by Blue Book Listings which include Flaps, Jacket patches, odd-shapes, neckerchiefs, etc. It also includes Lodge event patches, and all known chapter issues.
As I pick up new issues, I try to provide a scan to John, this only makes the site more valuable. If each person reading this post, could check there home lodge, and where possible provide any missing scans it would be a great help.
There is also a Members Only area, where for a nominal annual subsrciption, currently $10.00. You will have access to prices realized on the various issues from eBay. This feature is about a year old, and already has pricing data from over 80,000 eBay transactions.
