Great Felt Camp Patches – What’s Not to Like?

My Top 10 list from last week featured a sash that included felt camp patches. Now I know if there is a felt camp patch from my area collectors loose all inhibition and go crazy bidding. Judging by the results that may have happened in this case too. Does anybody know the story of these camps and feel up to sharing with the rest of us who are admiring them? click the text link to see the complete listing on eBay

Camp Emerald Bay is on Catalina Island off the coast of California. Still going strong.
Dr. Morley knows all about this camp. I don’t know much of it’s history.

There is a hard core group of Southern California camp patch collectors, so I’m not surprised at the high prices, especially for something in such nice shape relatively speaking. Too bad the pictures didn’t clearly show the other patches, or the merit badges on the front. There appear to be a leather San Fernando Valley Council Summer Camp 1939, SFVC 1941 Camporee, and SFVC 1942 Camporee oatches.

SASH WITH FELT CAMP PATCHES

This is one of the best sashes seen in many years. It is pre-WWII. It is very rare to have camp patches from 3 different councils in the 1930’s: Crescent Bay Area, San Fernando Valley, and Orange County. Camp Emerald Bay is one of the most collected camps in the country. The 1939 San Fernando Valley Council Summer Camp leather patch on the sash is most likely from Camp Letten. It has a lot of similarities to the 1938 Camp Letten patch. This sash is a gem with all of the patches and history it contains.
