3-Month Trends in Philmont Category Dated 3-21-06


One of the interesting statistics about this category is the average selling price of auction/fixed price listings. There were 871 items sold in this category for an average price of $43.40. Those auctions ran a 63% success rate which may be the best rate in any of the Boy Scouts subcategories. There were only 69 store items sold during this period.


The total sales for the three months amounted to $38,112.


The high average sales price and success rate show up right away when you take a closer look at what sold over the last three months. Of all the patches that sold or where offered for sale above $500 only three listings failed to get a bid/meet reserve. Meanwhile fifteen auctions did sell above $500 which is more than some of the other categories which are considerably more active than “Philmont, High Adventure”. I suppose you could say for these high quality pieces the success rate was more like 83%. That is really outstanding if you compare any of these numbers to the other Boy Scouts subcategories.
