Scouting Hot Finds Boy Scout Category Top 10 List #28

Jason Spangler brings back an old feature, the top 10 highest selling Scouting items on eBay from the first week in March 2021.

Last minute snipes, insurance bids and good old fashioned store inventory are among the best selling items in the Boy Scout category of eBay for the week of March 1-7, 2021. This video brings back an old classic. My last Top 10 video was published in May of 2012. So in bringing it back I’ve drawn some inspiration from other hobbies where this type of video has become popular.

You can see the video by clicking the image below.

.

One of them #6, was a Caldwell Pin from Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24. The one in Jason’s list also included the cloth pouch and box with the Caldwell logo, not sure if this contributed to this price realized.

There is currently another #24 Caldwell Pin available on eBay right now.

Let Jason know if you want to see more of these.

“During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety.” —Thomas Jefferson (1805)
