OA 1985 Philmont Trek National Committee Patch

I was surprised by a recently closed auction on eBay for a 1985 PHILMONT TREK NATIONAL COMMITTEE PATCH.  Can’t say that I have ever seen one before, but it would cover multiple collecting areas including Philmont and National OA issues.

Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

There were only 2 serious bidders on this auction, which started at only $ 3.99.  The winning bidder was determined to win this one, he or she bid 9 times on this auction including 4 bids in the space of a minute or so after having the highest bid.

It would seem each additional bid must have raised his maximum amount as he was not going to lose this auction which ended at over $ 2,100.00.

Philmont 50th Anniversay 1989 OA Trek

Ebay LogoWhile not one of the P2K Arrowheads I’ve previously written about, here is another short term issue from the Philmont 50th Anniversary 1989 OA Trek.  It was only issued for the 50th Anniversary and the Red Arrow was for the OA Trek that summer.

1989 50th Philmont

The price is pretty steep, but will it sell for this price?

You can check the auction by clicking on the image above for the next couple of months.

Philmont Ranch Hand P2K Arrowhead

Knowledge is Power

I have previously posted about Philmont arrowheads from the specialized programs held at Philmont.  During the year 2000 these Philmont Arrowheads had a red border and P2K embroidered on the patch.

Here is a n eBay auction for a P2K Ranch Hand Arrowhead.  This is the first time I’ve seen an arrowhead from this particular program area.

P2K ranch hand

Clicking on the image, will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

Here is what the BSA website has to say about the program:

Ranch Hands is a program for Scouts and Venturers who have knowledge of horsemanship and horse care and want to expand their skills and experience. The Ranch Hand crew will work with the horse department staff, taking care of Philmont’s 300 horses and 80 burros, hauling hay, saddling, and performing other horse program tasks.

I’m sure since it is a limited program, even a ‘regular’ Ranch Hand Arrowhead would command a significant premium to the standard.
