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.

State of the Hobby – Hanigus Lodge #47 R3 Redone

An auction recently ended for an old tough issue from New York State. Hanigus Lodge #47 merged with Chappegat Lodge #15 to form Mide Lodge #15 in 1957. They never issued a flap, so even their odd shapes command a premium price. I had posted about one that ended last summer, but this one did even better.

There was just a single bidder who knew what he wanted and who took the patch down for the minimum of $ 1,250.00

“Harmony, liberal intercourse with all Nations, are recommended by policy, humanity and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand: neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing with powers so disposed; in order to give trade a stable course.” —George Washington (1796)
