Does anyone no if there was other memorabilia issued for this conclave? In this era, their was usually a neckerchief issued as well.

We Have a Winner!!

BSA 100 Years of ScoutingThe BSA have chosen the winner of the design contest for the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

After careful consideration by the Anniversary Logo Leadership team, the total entries were pared down to approximately 500 semifinalists. From there, our panel of 11 select judges scored the semifinalists to provide input on determining the category and overall winners. These judges carefully reviewed the creative merit of each entry and the inspiration articulated in the accompanying essays. Among the thousands of outstanding submissions, Eagle Scout Philip Goolkasian’s entry eventually emerged as the design that captured both the history and future of the Boy Scouts.

Philip is an Eagle Scout from a troop in Sequoia, California.

Hardest NY OA To Collect – Area 2G

Hardest NY OA To Collect

Here is the second installment of the hardest New York State OA to collect sparked by a discussion on Patch-L. This one comes from update collector NY OA Collector, Ray Gould. Ray is a frequent contributor and commenter to this site. his collecting specialty is OA from the old Area 2-G and its successor lodges. Since there are 15 lodges (34, 34, 34, 34, 120, 219, 247, 294, 357, 410, 410, 461, 465, 500, and 516), we’ll break Ray’s thoughts up over a couple of posts.

Here are his thoughts:

Through time, I’ve found the following to be among the very toughest OA in the nation to collect (most of the following have less than 10 known examples ……approx. 1/2 have less than 5 examples…and most are undervalued). They are representative of the lodges I collect.

  • #34 Gonlix (IMHO…none rank among the toughest….even the arrowheads surface with occasional regularity)
  • #34
  • L-01 (flame shaped leather…neckerchief slide?) NEED!!!
  • eX1970-1 (fall fellowship…SSC on vinyl)

  • eX1970-2 (spring fellowship…SSC on vinyl)
  • eX1970-3 (fall brotherhood…SSC on vinyl)
  • eX1971 (Conservation Presentation…SSC and flocked on vinyl) NEED!!!

Hardest NY OA – Nischa Nitas Lodge #410 J1

Hardest NY OA To Collect

I’ve just begun a series on the hardest NY OA issues to collect based on a recent thread in Patch-L. Here is one of the toughest items from Nischa Nitas Lodge #410.

I actually held one in my hands once, but it is the only time I’ve seen it up close and personal. It had a very short run and is also very collectible as a Ceremonial Team issue.

One Nischa Nitas Lodge #410 J1 just finished up on eBay for nearly $ 1600.  At most this may be the second one I’ve seen on eBay over the last 10 years of steady searching.

Also one of the nicest, but simple looking designs in a Jacket Patch.
