One Man’s Junk Is Another Man’s Treasure


Like a lot of you I have a pretty narrow set of things that I collect and go after on eBay. You can be sure that does not include many of the things you will read about in this post. So just who goes after that miscellaneous stuff that some people would call “scout junk”? Well these collectors take their digging very serious if you look and see what this stuff sold for.


16mm Film Baden Powell Chief Scout World Life History

Boy Scout Uncut Sheet 1977 National Jamboree Patches

1940s Boy Scout Bolo Tie, Region Xii

32 Js Frys Boy Scout Series I/Ii Cards 1912 Not Tobacco

Vintage Ingersoll Boy Scout Watch





Notice the terrible quality control on those Trading Post C 77 JSPs. The black is totally off register; that’s probably why they weren’t finished. That’s one nice thing about the new embroidery machines nowadays. Color shifts are virtually impossible.
