Koi Hatachie OA Collection Nearly Complete!!!


345 Koi Hatachie Collection


It is a rare event when a “full” Koi Hatachie patch collection enters the market for sale. The 33 flap patches, 1 activity patch (SE2 – 1983) and 2 neckerchiefs listed below are cataloged using the American Scouting Historical Society Blue Book (Ver. 6). Inspect the images at your leisure. Click the images to enlarge them. This is a first-come first-serve basis. There can only be one winner. The collection comes in a binder – the two neckerchiefs come in a glass case as shown. All items will be sent Federal Express


Opening bid is only US $9,500.00

I got a friend of mine who collects this lodge and has probablly a better collection than the Mississippi boys themselves and he said it was way overpriced not to included any white panther items….guess the auction proved he knows what he is talking bout..;)

Figures there would finally be something on patchblanket that I would feel compelled to respond to. I started collecting this lodge 25 years ago. As someone with a complete Hatachie 345 collection who is familiar with virtually all of the guys collecting 345 in LA, MS and Georgia I must say my first reaction to the posting of this collection at $9500 was “where are those darn white panther flaps??” The collection has a break-up value of $4800-5500. The value would be higher had this collection shown up 2 years ago when there were like 4 Mississippi guys really going at it on ebay. Most of them have finished their hatachie sets, two of them even finished the white panther set. The way to sell this set would be to start at $4000-4500 with no reserve. Not sure where this guy was the last 2 years, sure didn’t see him on ebay- $7500 is still rather unreasonable, hence no buyers

Great analysis – I think a few years ago prices were much higher on eBay. I sold a bunch of stuff in the Spring and Summer of 2004 that brought record prices and those days have not been seen since.

Our seller Mr. R has decided to break up the set and sell a la carte on Ebay.
I see now that the F2’s, F3 and both s1’s appear used:( Most people still collecting 345 want the mint stuff. Some of the tough flaps will sell as hole fillers esp S1 a/b and F2c. On a positive note, the F1 is mint and the seller has posted pics front and back. This is wise as many of the gauze-back flaps from this era often are mint but have discolored or even crumbling gauze. Lets see if Mr. R can get over $1800 for the F1. The last one of these that sold had stuff on the back and still did well

It looks like Mr. R deserves the BigJim Award.

Ha Ha! There you go..we had almost forgotten about our own award. Very appropriate it would seem!
