This was part of a grouping. It was the last piece, no one wanted it. Then I saw a guy at the flea market with a sign , he was collecting for a Boy scout Museum!
So, I donated it to him.. He was in love at first site!, said it will be their best piece. Glad someone will be happy with it!

1949!! this is really cool! A professional made patch on felt.. Wonder how many members there were. NY and NJ has a lot of the Ukrainians that settled from the Russian forced famine of the early 30s.
