2010 Jamboree New York State OA Checklist

Since 2010 is the Centennial of the Boy Scouts of America which was founded in 1910 and a Jamboree year. The checklist will include any New York State OA Issues which commemorated the 2010 Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree.

It will only include any NYS OA issues specifically issued for the 2010 National Jamboree. Issues specific to the centennial will be categorized separately. If it indicates the National Jamboree and the Centennial, it will be included here, but will not be included in the 2010 BSA Centennial NYS OA checklist .

You can find the 2010 Jamboree New York State OA Checklist here or via the link in the sidebar.  This is still a work in progress, looking for information and scans for any items issued by lodges 34, 219, 339, 364 and 402.


Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair.

Arawak Lodge #562 2010 Jamboree Issue

I recently wrote about a high priced 2010 Jamboree Flap from Yokahu Lodge #506. Here is another offshore OA issue from Arawaqk Lodge #562.  It seems that the ‘offshore’ lodges are commanding a premium.

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

Anyone know of a more expensive single flap or 2-piece set from the 2010 Jamboree.


“The protection guaranteed by the amendments is much broader in scope. The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. They recognized the significance of man’s spiritual nature, of his feelings and of his intellect. They knew that only a part of the pain, pleasure and satisfactions of life are to be found in material things. They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred, as against the government, the right to be let alone-the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men. To protect, that right, every unjustifiable intrusion by the government upon the privacy of the individual, whatever the means employed, must be deemed a violation of the Fourth Amendment.’ – Justice Brandeis (dissenting) in Olmstead v. U.S., 277 U.S. 438 (1928)
