Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter October 9, 2016

At the TOR I saw a lot of good stuff spread out on the tables. One frame had an Eagle medal priced at over $2,000. I don’t know if the one I have in today’s Hot Finds will bring that but it’s certainly an early piece that is getting tons of bids.

It is funny how sometimes things have a way of working out. About a month ago a gentlemen posted some Air Scout items in the SPC which included three of my big patch needs. Despite my desperate attempts to work a deal with him another buyer purchased the entire collection. So imagine my surprise when Ben Wasmer who’s tables were directly across from mine had the items in his frame. Yep he was the lucky buyer and I was able to get 2 of the patches that had escaped me from him and now they are in my collection.

I talked to someone at the TOR about a really nice Girl Scout collection that I may get a shot at later in 2017. I’ve got a pretty good collection of books, uniforms and proficiency badges and this collection might have all that and more. Sometimes the beauty of going to a show is making those personal connections and having conversations that open doors.

As we were riding home from the TOR my phone started cha-chinging as some of my auctions were ending. Those of you who have the eBay APP know the sound I’m talking about. Well I’ve got a bunch more auctions ending tonight including many of the ones linked in here.
