Muscogee Lodge 221 First Issue R1 – The 5″ Round

221 R1 ncIn 1949 Muscogee Lodge issued its first patch, a five-inch round neckerchief patch, was sold along with a white silk neckerchief that was made from an old parachute. The neckerchief and patch sold, as a set, for five dollars. Because of the high cost they sold rather slowly, and were still being sold in the mid-fifties. After the issue in 1950 of a three-inch round patch of the same design as the five-inch round, National disapproved the design because of a curved arrow in the design, rather than a straight one.
