I think the collections merit badge is a very good addition to the list.
Teaching someone to collect something is important for may reasons, one being
our sense of history, nothing is more important to the future of scouting than
to understand where we came from and the trials and tribulations we have gone
through. If done properly, teaching somoeone to collect scout memorabilia will
futher their understanding of the Boy Scouts and not turn them into a greedy
patch collector who only collects patches because of their monetary value.
