camp barstow felt

Very rare felt from Camp Barstow has already caused a stir among the locals. Maybe we can get some feedback on the blanket!!



Now that a really clean old patch.
Must have been stored away all these years.
Should catch a decent price.

This auction actually surprises me i figured it would have gone to at least $800.00 but a local collector got it for a steal…it has a very good home which is what any camp collector likes to see!

auction ended at a mere…US $455.00

I heard back later that one collector from NC who is a big time Columbia/SC trader was willing to pay up to $2000+ for this patch but pulled the trigger to late on the bid button. There is something to say for those sniping services my boys!

Are you sure bout that?
I say no,no,no.
Bet the buyer would let it go for that no problemo
I see no real hope for guys like me collecting the barstow felts. I am better off helping fellow lodge members finish of their sets.

I was very surprised to have won this patch at $455. I believe that if the other bidder wouldnt have been late putting his bid in and another collector would have seen it, it would have went for close to $2000 if not more.

I dont know if some of the collectors of this camp realize just how imposible it is to collect these early Barstow patches.

In my opinion the 221 R1, 116 A1, 185 X1, 236 C1, or 270 R1, doesnt hold a candle to most of the early Barstow, or Camp Coker patches for that matter, in rarity.

Now value thats a different story. But just think if these patches would have had W.W.W. on them. What would they bring then?
