Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter December 26, 2014


I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are counting down to the new year. There is a lot of college football to watch between now and then including a bowl game tomorrow that my favorite team is in. Have fun flipping through these picks in today’s newsletter.

I guess even with the photo reversed there will be some bids coming in for that Tipisa round. It’s not the spectacular R1 but this one is going to sell regardless. I’ve also take a close look at the lot pictured below and it’s a decent pick up but I don’t see any major heat in there.

Well I believe it’s called a flip. I know for certain that recently on eBay there was a lot that included that Southbounders Chapter patch from AKK #185 and the 1982 Dixie Staff patch w/loop. Now they are offered up individually. There are people who make a living doing this sorta thing on eBay but I’m not in that game.

The old Project ’51 patch below is probably the oldest OA event patch I can think of in the Carolinas. This was back in the day when J. Rucker Newbery was calling the shots down in Charleston. Newbery wrote the first OA handbook (published in Charleston) was was instrumental in forming several lodges in the area.

This weekend my carpenter is going to deliver some shelves and racks that I’m going to use in my antique mall booth. If all goes well later in the week I’ll be able to take the pieces down there and start building the booth.

Later today I’m going kayaking with my daughter. However is not a post-Christmas distraction instead we are going here science fair project. She is going to take 10 water samples on the river so we can test to see if the water is polluted. So far we’ve learned a lot about fresh water rivers and the chemicals that can foul them. It’s not too cold here so hopefully it will be a fun adventure.
