Back in May of 2007 I asked about the 409 Tuighaunock S16.
I am looking for a 409S16. Unfortunately I don’t know what it looks like as there is not one pictured on OAImages.com. Do you have one you could trade to me, and if not, do you have a picture of one so I know what I am looking for?
I did not have one than, and still don’t have one.
My long running suspicion is that it may be a dupelicate listing of the S14 S14.5 or another S10 design variant.
By S10 variant, I mean following the design of the S10 (pictured below) but with the dimensions of the S16 description.
The Blue book description of the S16 is:
S16 RED R M/C RED DYL FDL; 53x114mm

Does anyone have a 409 S16 in their collection or duplicates?
I’d be interested in a trade or at least a good scan to validate the existence of the issue and upgrade the BB description.

A new patch trading application, PatchScan was announced on Facebook yesterday.
“You know the feeling. You’ve been sitting in a patch trading tent for hours, it’s late at night, and right before you are going to call it a night… someone shows you a patch that you just have to have. You love the patch and really (really!) want to add it to your collection. But he wants your rarest patch in trade.
Sure, he says that only three of that patch exist in the entire world and “you’ll never see one like it again!” Of course you want to trust him, but wouldn’t you feel better if you could verify that number? You remember how it felt the last time you traded 3-to-1 for a patch that you couldn’t even give away later.
And while we’re at it… wouldn’t it be awfully nice to know when it was made, who made it, and if it’s part of a set?
If you could get that kind of knowledge, would it make you a better patch trader? More likely to make smarter trades and less likely to be disappointed by an unknown patch?”
Not all official patches have PatchScan codes on the back, at the Jamboree but many of them will.
PatchScanTM reportedly is the official BSA® patch trading app and is available for both Android and iOS.
As long as your device has an internet connection, you can scan the special code that’s on the back of many official Boy Scout patches. Once you scan that code, the app will tell you everything you need to know. You’ll even see a scan of a patch from the same production run so you can verify that the patch in your hand is legit.

Ultimately, the health of the republic rested on civic virtue – that is, on the willingness of individuals to sacrifice private interests to the common good. This school of thought, which sought to revive the classical virtues of the Roman republic, has become known as republicanism….
The dark side of republicanism is its potentially totalitarian tendency to subordinate individuals to the public good, as defined by governmental elites. Daniel Farber’s and Philip Frickey’s, Law and Public Choice:
Here is another post from nearly 5 years ago, this time for the 1955 Area 2-G Conclave. Anyone have one of these patches available for trade or sale?
Ray speculates about the neckerchief pictured below
Ray Gould speculated…
These are the reasons why this makes sense:
1. Look at the neckerchief, stylistically, it looks very similar to the 1955 patch (which also makes no mention of the conclave or date).
2. It is more likely that the neckerchief was produced for the 1955 event because a patch was definitely issued (for the 1955 conclave) and was likely paired with it.
3. As Bill states, it is possible that nothing was produced for the 1953 meeting (it was probably not a true conclave because the 1956 patch clearly states “Area II-G 3rd Conference”). This implies that the first “true” conclave was 1954 (which has both a neckerchief slide and neckerchief….both clearly dated and stylistically similar). I believe the said 1955 patch was erroneously attributed to this (1954) conclave in the collecting guide (it stylistically looks nothing like the other 1954 pieces).
I would place both the arrowhead shaped patch (I believe you’ve shared it in previous blog posts) and neckerchief in the same year. Either both were used for the 1953 meeting (very unlikely….because it leaves us with the no items being produced for the 1955 event) or both for the 1955 conclave (by deduction, it is more likely that either nothing or a much smaller production run was produced for the 1953 planning meeting….perhaps leaving us with the possibility that there are still 1953 items to discover)
My 2 cents-
See the original post for the full writeup.
This is still a need of mine, does anyone have either the patch available for trade or sale?
But just because someone in Team A makes an inadvertent excel error does not mean that everything Team B believes is true. To suggest otherwise would be a truly egregious mistake.
