Wait…I thought the Merit Badge market tanked?

I think about three months ago I wrote a blog post about conversations I had with collectors that led me to believe that the prices for vintage merit badges had plummeted. Well although its a thin bit of evidence I’d like to show you three auctions that defy that logic. Coming with just a single bidder here are three merit badges that sold for over $300. Now I couldn’t leave out the best sashes that sold last week although they seemed to be priced at a more reasonable level.
