  1. Hello. I stumbled upon your website while looking for something on google. I had some questions about what you collect:

    1) In your belt buckles, on the second photo, second to last column, second to last row, there is one that says “Mt. Allamuchy”. I have never really collected belt buckles, but on the otherhand there is very little from the camp that I don’t have at this point. I think I have picked up a few of these buckles as part of ebay lots, etc. over the years. If I have one that you don’t have, would you consider trading this Allamuchy buckle?

    2) I saw that you collect some of the early jamboree contingent patches. Do you have any of the Morris-Sussex contingent patches from any jamboree from 1969 or earlier? I’m just trying to get scans of ones that I am looking for.


  2. I am interested in a Osceola KC flat brass belt buckle. If you have dups or know of one.

  3. I am looking for an OA Neal slide from Lodge 505 in the shape of a pocket flap. and some Ten Mile River Scout camp Staff neckerchiefs from basically the 50″s. If you can help. I also trade and collect High Adventure Bases, OA, and odds and ends that catch my eye. Frank

  19. I have many patches from the 1990’s. Ohio, Dan Beard Council. Looking to sell.

  20. I need the value of a felt brotherhood sash initialed by Dr. Goodman and signed by Carrol Edson. Goodman retired close to our lodge and come by. When he was there he would sign sashes. One trip Edson same with Dr. Goodman. Boy were they busy. They signed just a few sashes a minute and the line moved on.

    They signed my Vigil sash and Goodman initialed the felt sash and Edson signed both. Goodman said he had learned to use initials on felt as the signature would began to wither away. Some of Edsons signature is still there.

    I am getting insurance and I need to know the value of each sash.
