RARE COINS FOR SALE


Do we have any coin collectors out there? I recently purchased a Morgan Dollar that I could buy and flip it and give the profits to our valley.The coin is an 1885 Carson City Morgan dollar graded by NGC it is part of the GSA hoard and is graded MS66. There are only 336 graded this high, book value is $4800.00! So I'm open to offers with the profits going to our Scottish Rite Valley of KC.

A Special Thanks goes out to Brother Brian Czugala for this information!

THE 50 YEAR MEMBER:THE WEST GATE

by Midnight Freemason Contributor

Bill Hosler, P.M.


The 50 year member was getting excited. Today was going to be a monumental day in his life. (Well, okay, not like the day he got married or the birth of his children, but still life changing). Today was the day he was going to purchase his first smart phone. Not just a flip phone like most of the guys in the lodge have but a real, up to date smart phone!
