Old Boy Scout Merit Badge Sashes Come With Surprises

One of the best thing about searching on eBay and looking at old merit badges sashes is that some of them have bonus material.  Back in the day many Scouts would sew (or their mother’s would sew) camp and activity patches on the MB sash.  Some of these camp patches were treated like awards and so it seemed like a natural fit to put them on the sash.  Flash forward to the present when these sashes show up on eBay now they can often have twenty-thirty old merit badge patches AND some nice felt camp patches to boot.  The first three examples I’ve got in this blog represent this trend.
