Recently several World Jamboree items were noteable because they didn’t get a minimum bid. This is following some of the record breaking prices this past year.

If I could invent a time machine I would travel back in time to the 1947 Jamboree and trade everything but my underwear for anything from that event. It is truly remarkable that SOOO many patches from this event (subcamps for example) are bringing more than many of the best OA patches that many of us treasure and covet.

Having only gotten back into Scout collecting in the past 6 months, I’ve been out of it since the early 80’s, I noticed that for the most part the prices for National Jamboree items, save the “Holy Grail” have remained rather flat. The early Jambo patches and neckerchiefs have not really gone up in price relative to OA items. I would guess that is due in part to the on-line auctions where many items are now coming out of the closet. In the “old days”, folks with the goods could pretty much set own price and drive the market. Today with more competition and “knowledge”, prices have settled out. OA always being more scarce will continue to rise. Is this an accurate view?:)
