For those of you who do not know me,
let me tell you a little about myself. I have been in Scouting for over
40 years. As a youth I earned the Eagle Award with 6 palms and the
VIGIL honor. I became interested in collecting Boy Scout collectibles, patches
and memorabilia at the 1981 National Jamboree and have been
going strong ever since.
My main interest is in NATIONAL
ISSUED BOY SCOUT PATCHES, BADGES, MEDALS, PINS, UNIFORMS AND
INSIGNIA and would like to buy or trade for items I need for my
collection. I have many good duplicate BSA Rank Badges, Adult Office
Badges, Explorer, Insignia, MB's, Pins, Jamboree,
Medals, LSA, Books, OA Patches and other items for trade or sale.
Please let me know what you have and are looking for.
In addition to my
collecting, I also enjoy researching and writing about
Scouting history. Some of my books are:
- The Boy Scouts of America During WWI & WWII
- A Guide to Dating and Identifying
BSA Badges, Uniforms and Insignia
- The History of the Lone Scouts
- The History of the Connecticut
Rivers Council - BSA
- The History of the Boy Scouts of America

articles on Boy Scout Collectibles and Patch Collecting.
