20,737.00 Euros….Is that A Lot of Money?

Ok I have to confess that I didn’t see this one but one of the Hot Finds readers sent it to me and its just too special not to share and get some feedback on. I won’t give to much commentary until you’ve had a chance to see it.


Lot écussons Tissus EDF Scout Jamboree 1947



The kicker in this auction is the Maitrise. My tipster sent me this about the auction.


“Maitrise was the staff badge given to the leader in charge of each individual staff service area e.g. newspaper. I don’t know how many different staff services there were but obviously not a big number. Several years back a 1947 world jamboree – Maitrise badge sold on ebay for $73,000. Everyone was calling it “Hurricane Maitrise”. I guess this one was just “Tropical Storm Maitrise”




Which particular badge is that?
