Lot of 3 BSA ? felt deer patch / achievement award

Here is an auction which certainly qualifies as buried treasure.  The seller of this auction started the bidding at only $ 1.99.

It seems that the key piece here is the Deer Rock Lodge X5 which is the diamond shaped felt patch in the image.

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

Not sure if the other two patches are related to Scouting, but 9 bidders and 15 bids drove this auction up to over $ 1,100.
