Vintage – Very Rare Boy Scout Patches Sewn On A Vest

Ebay LogoThere is an interesting auction up on eBay, entitled Vintage – Very Rare Boy Scout Patches Sewn On A Vest.

There are well over a dozen photos available for this auction and the vest contains a number of vintage OA odd-shapes from circa 1950.

There is a reserve, so the seller seems to have some idea what he has.  Will this be buried treasure for a lucky bidder or will it find its value?

Update: As I wrote this post last night, it did not have a bid.  Twelve hours later, it is now over $500 and the reserve has still not been met.  The seller knows what he has, and since he listed many of the Lodge names in the description, the bidders are finding it. 

What do you think the selling price will be?
