New Variety Lodge #86 eX2001 Pow Wow

While at the Lodge #2 TOR this weekend, I young Scout came up to me with his grandfather with two patches to trade. They were two recent OA lodge event patches form NY, both of which I had, and one of which I had in dupe on the table. But like may of you think it is good policy to encourage younger Scouts to trade so I offered him his choice of several 1:1 flaps I had available. With the help of his grandfather, he chose two and we shook hands.
Now it has also become my policy, that whenever I receive a twill patch, even if it is one I already have, I check the twill direction with the Blue Book. If the twill direction is not listed, I set it aside until I can compare it to the one in my collection.
I did compare one of the patches to the dupe I had on hand and they were TL and TR. So a new variety was discovered. Guess always trading with scouts (where permitted by event rules) is a good policy. Here are the stats: eX2001a RED R TAN RED YEL FDL; BLK Camp Bullowa Pow Wow; BLK inner border Add TLS eX2001b RED R TAN RED YEL FDL; BLK Camp Bullowa Pow Wow; BLK inner border TR
86 eX2001a and 86eX2001b Note the border color change from Orange to the correct red. By the way, my 86eX2002 has TRS. Is yours TR or TL?

New Discovery? Lodge #402 Neckerchief

I picked up what I thought was a 402N3 in error, as I had one in my collection, but since the 'new' one was Mint In Package (MIP), I decided to compare it with the one already in my collection. AS luck would have it, the one I already had was also MIP. Then I looked again and relized there were two different backgrounds. What I had in my collection matched the Blue Book description for the N3, and it had a TRQ silkscreened background. The N4(?) had an LBL silkscreened background BB V stats are: N3 - - WHT BRN - M/C TRI SSC design

The next one is:

Both have been scanned through their original sealed palstic bags. Any else have one?

Suanhacky Lodge #49 75th Anniversary X26

At their lodge banquet last month, Suanhacky introduced another patch for their 75th Anniversary Celebration. The patch is tear-dropped shaped. BB Style stats are: X26 LOR R LTQ RED LTQ FDL RED "75 Years - 1930 - 2005 - of Service"

Update 4-26: I have been advised by a Suanhacky Lodge member that this patch was given to all participants of the Diamond Anniversary Banquet. Each patch was numbered 1-200 and came with a certificate which was also numbered. My understanding is the extra patches were sold at the event.

Dick Cordes of Suanhacky Lodge #49 brought to my attention several event patches from #49. Apparently the patch was ordered with four years (1989, 1990, 1991, and 1992) arranged around the 4 sides of the cut-edge patch. This allowed the lodge to place a single order and cut off the three years not used for a particular conclave. "Attached is an image of 3 Suanhacky Lodge event patches as the Blue Book 5 doesn't reflect the existence of eX1989. Perhaps the patches should be reflected as eX1989, eX1990, & eX1991. I have never come across the 1992 patch." I have a eX1990 in my collection which has the 1991 and 1992 strips taped to the patch, the 1990 is still attached, and the 1989 is gone. Does anyone have a 1992 version? Or did the Lodge run out after 1991 and not reorder?
