Posts Tagged ‘Auction Report’

Well, some of you Camp Naish collectors will be disappointed to know that a frontiersman or “Daniel Boone” patch on a uniform closed recently on eBay. If you take a look at the auction, the title and description weren’t very descriptive. Accordingly, the item didn’t bring very much money (lucky for the winning bidder).

A collector friend made an interesting point about the item: above the Camp Naish patch hangs an order of the arrow pocket device. Tamegonit Lodge, which was founded in 1939, didn’t have any official insignia until the 1950s, so the national symbol was all lodge members had at the time. See below:

Here’s a link to a PDF of the complete listing.

Have you found any local items that have gone under the radar? If so, drop me a line.

Yesterday brought the end of an auction for another interesting Kansas City area scouting item . If you didn’t see it, a shirt was listed as “1940s Vintage Boy Scout Patches &Shirt- Air Scout Patch”. The most interesting item to me was the “N 40” diamond (more on that in a minute), but I also thought the Air Scout patches added an interesting twist. Here’s a PDF of the listing (with all of the pictures): Boy Scout shirt listing

Here’s the interesting part: as I covered in the following post, there were two color combinations for the 1940 Camp Naish felt diamond…until last week. See below:

1940 Camp Naish Felt Diamond Varieties

Now we have blue with yellow, blue with red, and blue with white. Also, it appears that each of the blue felts are different colors…

This begs the questions: How many color combinations are there? What (if anything) do they signify?
