Best Selling Shoulder Strips: RWS 1/2 Strips, JSPs, KRS, CSPs

Its not always easy to find the various shoulder emblems that are for sale on eBay. I used about five different search terms and came up with top sellers in a variety of niche categories of shoulder strip collecting. The heads & shoulders winner was the Buttes Area CSP. I have not seen many CSPs sell on eBay for over $1,000 so this one made my jaw drop a little bit. Probably the strangest thing I found was the lot of community strips. I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out why numerous bidders ran that 11-patch lot up over $300. It just goes to show there is a lot of specialized knowledge in this hobby and nobody can be an expert in everything!

I wish I had seen that Buttes as it’s one of my needs. On the plus side, I still have $1000 in my pocket! Let me know if you see a Mt. Lassen #1.

Is one of those “community strips” actually a council RW half strip or a military base strip? That seems very high for just a collection of towns.

As far as I can tell, it’s just a collection of towns. Some are pretty small towns, mostly from San Luis Obispo area and Los Angeles. There were three snipers on this one, so there are obviously some pretty serious traders from SLO.
