A good source for old insignia is:
Euless, TX 76039
For $10.00 you can subscribe to their monthly catalogue of Scout
memorabilia for sale. I just acquired a new 50th Anniversary strip from
them that was in excellent shape for $4.00 to replace my old one that was
much deteriorated from use. From time to time they advertise knots and
ribbons no longer extant. In May the had an Explorer Silver Award Medal
with ribbon for $300 and the square knot for $100. Ouch! You're right
about the prices. But what can you do when its rare and in demand? Every
once in a while I check in with the Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul,
and Goodwill stores - you'd be surprised at the old Scout stuff that turns
up. Just purchased a 1981 NJ Mug for $.50 for example.
Someone else earlier was looking for hat brushes - they (The
Sevensons) have a few for sale in thier July cataloge. The hat brush
holder runs $4.00. Japanese Brushes run to $20 ea.
