As far as Scout memorabilia goes, just about anything is collectible,
it just depends on what the person likes. Now, whether or not the item
is valueable to another collector is a different story.
For the most part many collectors, collect their stuff, either because
they like it, it reminds them of an event, or they went to it and
Of course, it is nice to have something that is considered to be worth
something, but as as far as scout stuff goes thta isn't my main reason
for collecting it.
A lot of the stuff I have collected, I either got it because I liked
it or I wanted some stuff from other parts of the country or the
world.I have some stuff that is worth something as well (for example a
bound set of Boy's Life magazines from 1930).
I like to collect patches, neckerchief slides, hats, neckerchiefs,
etc. but I also like you like to collect scouting literature. I have a
almost complete set of the adult Scout magazine from 1950 to 1970.
Send me your email address and we can talk some more.
