1958 NOAC – More Information

In response to my previous post, Matt P. tipped me off to a recent eBay listing that shows both the original and reproduction 1958 NOAC pocket patch.

Here’s a PDF of the listing: 1958 NOAC Pocket Patch Listing

The second page has a good view of the front and back of the patch.

Thanks, Matt!

Given that the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas was the site for the 1958 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC), it is only right for Tamegonit/Kansas OA collectors to add a 1958 NOAC pocket patch to their collection.  The question is:  when you find one, is it an original or a reproduction?  The following images are from the March 1998 American Scouting Traders Association Report feature article by John Conley Williams which provides some guidance on how to differentiate between the original and the reproduction patches.  The article notes that the reproductions were sold at the 1975 NOAC.  If I dig up a scan of the real and original, I’ll post those as well.

Thanks to Gene T. for the article scans.

Hopefully I haven’t ruined someone’s weekend when they use this article to discover that they have a reproduction…

Original or reproduction,  I’ll leave you with this image of a neckerchief slide I spotted on eBay a while back…a Univeristy of Kansas Jayhawk wearing a brotherhood sash.

When are Vigil nominations due?
