Buried Treasure?

Ebay LogoI was browsing the recent auction on eBay, and came across one entitled Vintage Boy Scout Pins Patches Council Rank Order Light which closed for $ 1369.

HF RWSClicking on the image will bring you to the auction for the next couple of months.

Most of the items seem common.  I assume that the treasure here is the 2 Hampshire Franklin RWS’s.

So was this buried treasure or did it find its correct level?

  1. The “buried treasure” here was indeed the two Hampshire-Franklin RWS.

    You’d need to really know your stuff and have a sharp eye to notice that this is the (much rarer) variety without the hyphen.
