The Order of the Arrow:
Buckskin Lodge 412
Patches

 

Over the years Buckskin Lodge has issued quite a few patches. Some were created for members to use on their uniforms or jackets, while others were intended more as a fund raising venture. Collecting all of them is quite a challenge, as many people collect OA patches from lodges other than their own.

The numbers below the patches are from the Blue Book guide commonly used to catalog Scout patches. Please let me know if you have any of the ones marked WANTED or any others for sale or trade. Also, I would appreciate any information as to errors in these numbers. There are many conflicting versions of these numbers, and some of the patches are hard to distinguish, so if you have any information, please let me know.
