Lodge 294 F1 Information requested
I have a B&W copy of one with a thread break (it's missing the arrowhead) originally from Don Vanderbilt's collection. Don't know where that one wound up. One appears on Rob Kutz's NY OA Prices Realized 2/92 - 3/93 which is listed as missing the arrowhead and sold for $500.
Rob did several auctions of NY OA Collections from that time frame at least one was for Joe Mirenda's estate (his GNYC 5 Lodges issues), don't remember the source of the other, it may have been Don Vanderbilt's. The F1 is also listed (F1 "half moon shape") in Al Rosenberger's "The Order of the Arrow in New York State" published around 1984-1985 and in the Original Arapaho 2.
Does anyone else know of the location of one or more of these round bottom (half moon) 294F1's?
