Knowledge is Power – P2K Arrowheads

Knowledge is Power Here is the latest installment in the series Knowledge is Power. Many of you know that Philmont Scout Ranch is a popular area of collecting. One of the key pieces in any Philmont collection is the Philmont Arrowhead which can only be earned for completing a trek. A person can only get a single Arrowhead upon completion of a trek. In addition to the ‘regular’ trek arrowhead, there are also five other arrowheads issued for Ranch Hand, Cavalcade, Mountain Trek, R.O.C.S., and Trail Crew. These programs are much smaller and have fewer participants than the regular treks and are tougher to get and more valuable.

In 2000 only, Philmont changed the arrowheads, by making the borders red and changing the Philmont brand to read P2K. Since these were only used for a single season, this is an exceptionally tough set to complete.

One just recently finished on eBay, a set of all 6 P2K Arrowheads with a Buy it now of $ 5,000.00 lasted less than 8 hours before it was snapped up.

Here is an example of a Philmont P2K Cavalcade Patch.  A Cavalcade is a Trek on Horseback.

    really sad when someone but a Philmont Arrowhead patch up on ebay.. really says a lot about the individual and how apparently little the experience meant to them.

    I wouldn’t make such a blanket comment myself. People change, financial needs arise, lives move on.

    It is sad to think that, if it did mean so much to an individual, and they were still forced to sell it.

    At least with eBay, you can recover a similar (although not ‘yours’) a similar issue in the future.
