CHAIRMAN’S & PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Tenth ISCA Convention, Annual Board
Meeting and Dallas Trade-O-Ree
ISCA held its 10th Annual Convention in Dallas in conjunction with the 35th
Dallas Trade-o-ree in January. Attendance to the trade-o-ree seemed a little
down from previous years, but there was still a lot of people from all over the
country and from what we heard, there were some pretty good sales. An ISCA
Board meeting was held prior to the Trade-o-ree and a total of five workshops
were held during the Trade-o-ree. One of the sessions was an open session
Terry Grove
Craig Leighty
on ISCA with questions and answers about some of the latest on ISCA and
Chairman
President
ISCA’s role in the 2013 National Jamboree including the Collections merit
badge and the evening trading activity. It was noted that we could still use a
couple more people to help staff the Collections merit badge. More details, or to express interest, can be obtained from Rick
Bedsworth ([email protected]).
During the board meeting, the new regional structure under the guidance of VP Activities, Bill Loeble, was discussed. More
volunteers are needed to cover all lodges and councils to include history projects, coordination, and other as determined in the
future. If you would like to volunteer and/or get more information on what is involved, please contact Bill at ([email protected]
com) or one of the regional coordinators: Northeast Region - Greg Anthony ([email protected]), Southern Region - Bill
Biggerstaff ([email protected]), Central Region - Kory Lewis ([email protected]) and Western Region Rick Bedsworth ([email protected]).
2013 National Scout Jamboree
As discussed before in past Journals, ISCA is involved in two ways this summer at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree at the
Summit.
Patch trading at the Summit for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree will for the first time become an official program activity
administered by the Summit Program Leadership Action Team (S.P.L.A.T.) in an “Arena Experience” area. This Arena
Experience area will be the location for a number of great activities such as games, entertainment, special presentations, and
patch trading. ISCA will provide support for the patch trading venue by offering resource materials and information, logistic,
planning and organizational support, and monitoring of the area(s) during the Jamboree by providing ISCA members to be on
staff. ISCA has organized a team to support this activity under Craig Leighty. If you have any questions or would like more
information, please contact him at ([email protected]).
ISCA will also again sponsor the Collections Merit Badge. It will be offered in an area adjacent to where the patch trading
activity will occur and will include a number of displays that can be used for both the merit badge and also as a resource for
the patch trading activity. Jamboree staff positions are still available. For additional details and/or to express interest, contact
Rick Bedsworth ([email protected]).
Membership Updates & Subscriptions to the Journal
As most of you are aware, we try to notify you when your annual membership fee is coming due (if you are not a life member)
and also if you subscribe to the journal through the mail, when your subscription fee is also due. The easiest way for us to give
you that reminder is to send you an email. Most all of you have supplied us with your email address (in your on-line member
profile), but some of you have not. We encourage all of you upon reading this to log into the ISCA website and update your
profile to include your email so you can receive the occasional ISCA updates (usually about once a quarter) and also get
notification if anything is about to expire related to your account. If you have trouble doing so, please send an email to Craig.
[email protected] and we can help you do it. You can also pay your dues and subscribe to a printed copy of the Journal
on-line at any time. If you still only feel comfortable with doing things through the mail, the address is: ISCA, PO Box 10008,
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96158 and mark it attention Tod Johnson.

THE FORGOTTEN FIRST BADGES
OF THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
By Michael Feigenbaum
The first badges of the Boy Scouts
of America were made available in
November 1910. Around that time
Bulletin No. 6 was reprinted from the
BSA original headquarters at 128 East
28th Street in New York City. This
“Bulletin No. 6,” took the form of an 8
page illustrated Price List. It depicted
uniform parts, printed matter, including
a Handbook and now these first badges
for both Boy Scouts and leaders. The
new National Headquarters address at
200 Fifth Avenue was inscribed on the
bulletins cover, as they were to shortly
move into that new office on January 2,
1911 (Fig 1).
These first badges were designed after
the British model. They did not have an
Eagle superimposed on the fleur-delis, as the Scout Sign of today. But they
did have the symbol for “Truth and
Knowledge,” in the form of two stars.
The design patent was applied for by
Baden Powell as the assignor to the
Boy Scouts of America on December
30, 1910 and obtained on May 30,
1911 (Fig 2).
Fig 1
These badges for boys consisted of
Tenderfoot, Second, and First Class
pins in gold gilt (Fig 3). The Tenderfoot
and First Class Badge were also available in a
white metal finish for Patrol Leaders. The First

Class white metal badge was to be used on the Patrol leaders
hat. While the gold one was to be worn on the Scout’s sleeve.
The Tenderfoot badge was a Lapel pin for use on a collar. It
had a round attachment on the backside, for inserting into button
holes. Safety pins were used on the backside of the Second and
First Class Badges. Unlike the British badges, which had two
looped posts. These posts would be pushed through the material
of a shirt or hat. A separate rod would then be inserted through
the two loops to hold the badge in place. This British concept of
attachment would continue to be used. Australia, Canada, New
Zealand, and other British Commonwealth countries, would use
them on large pins until around the 1960s.

shown in the catalog, did not have stars in them. But were soon
modified by the British manufacturer to include them. So NoStars and Stars both existed on these hat plumes used by the
The First Class badge had a distinctive line of Pearls or dots
embossed on it. These appear on the horizontal Ring holding the
three parts of the fleur-de-lis together. They can be seen on the
drawings in the Bulletin No. 6, price list and the US design patent
document. (Fig 4) This ornamentation also appears in a widely
published photo taken in September 1910 of Ernest Thompson
Seton, Baden-Powell, and Daniel Carter Beard. Behind them

hangs, showing this first class badge.

horse hair plumes protruding from the topside. Red for

the British Boy Scout Association in 1908. But by 1910/1911
the British had moved on to a third, more elaborate plume. In

Dr. West then asked his friend Clifford H.
Berryman, a famous Cartoonist employed
by the Washington Evening Star to create
a comprehensive drawing of that sketch.
The new design was submitted by James
E. West for a Patent on February 15, 1911
and approved on July 4, 1911.
1912 the Boy Scout Association once again
would change their hat plume, to include for
the first time, the American idea of 2 stars.
Many other countries would also adopt
these 2 stars on their distinctive national
Scout signs, including the World Scout
emblem.
Why did this new organization use metal
pins instead embroidered cloth emblems?
Because washing at the time was done
by hand. Clothes were scrubbed against
ribbed washboards. Dyes would fade and
the fibers of the cloth would wear with each
washing. While pins could be removed from
clothes and avoid the washing process.
Removable buttons were also widely used
at the time. Pins would continue to be used
by the BSA for the next few years
Daniel Carter Beard, the National Scout
Commissioner, felt that the BSA was
going in the wrong direction with the look
of this symbol. Beard wanted it to be
Americanized. He brought his idea up in
a discussion in January 1911 with James
E. West, the Chief Scout Executive. Daniel
Beard supplied a rough sketch showing
an Eagle superimposed over a modified
How many of these first badges were
purchased and earned in just a few
months?
Would this new organization
want these first badges and what they were
placed on to be seen any more. Would
they continue to issue them until they were
depleted. Or discard these emblems, once
the design with the superimposed eagle
was available? To be sure this new youth
movement was seeking the support and
admiration of the American people. Using
the American design with the eagle would
help them achieve that end.

News from the National Scouting Museum
100 Years of Scouting Magazine Goes Online
By CORRY KANZENBERG, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, National Scouting Museum
The product of a collaborative
effort between the Boy Scouts
of America and the University of North Texas, issues of
Scouting magazine from the
National Scouting Museum
Archives become available
online
this
March.
This
important resource is being introduced on the web just as the
magazine celebrates its onehundredth anniversary year.
In early 2012, our colleagues
over at Scouting approached
us with the idea of digitizing
the entire run of the magazine,
page by page. With a limited
budget and a desired launch
date of March 2013, we began researching the options
for successfully completing
such a massive undertaking.
Our friends nearby at the University of North Texas provided
a practical solution to scan, catalog, and upload the issues via
their unique online database,
The Portal to Texas History. As
the University looks to expand
its online history platform to a
national level, Scouting provides a chance to help them
meet this expectation. Offering
broad opportunities for exploration, the magazine’s availability
through an academic website
will foster new historical research on Scouting-related
topics. With more than 2 million
items to search from among
numerous contributing museums, libraries, and memory
institutions, users of the site
may happen upon cross-references to Scouting subjects
in a variety of documents in
addition to results from the official magazine. These might
include newspaper references,
or photographs, for example.
An issue of Scouting from the National Scouting Museum Archives.
This magazine and others are now available to browse for free on the web.
Currently, only the first decade of the magazine is accessible online. As additional issues are scanned, uploaded, and cataloged,
they will be made available as well. We hope you’ll enjoy perusing this new feature, and look forward to your feedback. You can view
issues and explore the project in process at: http://scoutingmagazine.org/, or http://texashistory.unt.edu/explore/collections/SCOUT/

Looking For Red & Whites
Yet Another Variation
By
Blake Keasey
ISCA 0084L
Again, there is another variation to
report. This time it comes from Valley
Forge Council (PA). There are already
[email protected]
2 size variations, in which the name is
either 102 or 116 mm in length. Turns out that the 102 variation
comes up as both TTB and TBL (in the Council name). They are
both pictured so the tag differences can be seen. They will be
designated as VALLEY FORGE/COUNCIL (102/) TBL and VALLEY
FORGE/COUNCIL (102) TTB. TBL is the tougher variation.
There is one new 1/2KR and one new 1/2RW. The TRINITY
NECHES 1/2KR is a shorter format than the previously reported
Trinity-Neches Council. The MAUI COUNTY 1/2RW is a later
format of the previously reported Maui County 1/2KR.
It is rare that a new Sea Scout strip surfaces. The new find is
WASHINGTON, D.C. 1/2BW.
New Cub Scout strips are even rarer. We have 2, ALAMEDA
1/2BY from CA and YONKERS 1/2BY from NY.
Of the 4 new military base strips (mbs) all 3 of the 1/2KRs come
from different branches. From the US Marine Corps, we have
CHERRY POINT 1/2KR. Its construction in late 1941 began with
extensive malaria control work in a swampy section of NC. The
one from the US Air Force is ELEMDORF A.F.B. 1/2KR, which is
located in AK. From the US Army, we have DARMSTADT 1/2KR,
which is located in what had been West Germany. I even know the
Troop number (65) as that was my first Scout Troop in 1951. I have
been searching for this patch for 3 decades so I could complete a
display.
The single 1/2RW is from FONTAINBLEAU, France. This strip
would have been worn by Scouts whose parents served at the
Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE). This
HQ was established by General Eisenhower in April 1951 and
discontinued in February 1966 when President de Gaulle decided
to withdraw from NATO.
When I am picking funny and/or unusual town names I often think of
someone responding to the question – Where do you live? Some
of these responses would indeed sound unusual and perhaps even
funny. As readers of this column often ask me if there really is such
a place I have begun trying to locate them and will list their state if
I found it. The names are Corn (OK), Lost Nation (IA), Macks Inn
(ID), Micro (NC), Novelty (MO), Novice (TX), and Science Hill (KY).

D. Roosevelt as
“a kind of amiable Boy Scout,” the United States was deep
in the Great Depression. Elected in November 1932 on the promise of a “New Deal”
to put Americans back to work, Roosevelt’s
programs included the National Recovery
Administration (NRA) designed to regulate
fair pricing practices, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the Civil Works Administration (CWA), both of which created
temporary manual labor jobs for unskilled
workers.
York City Mayor John Francis Hylan. Then
the Scouts set off on an all-day trip up the
Hudson River to Bear Mountain Scout Camp
for selected Scouts, Scout officials, and
friends of the Movement, to inspect eighteen
camps serving 2,100 local Boy Scouts.
To get there, Roosevelt’s volunteers
chartered the largest boat in the “White
Fleet” of the Hudson Navigation Company.
Upon docking, the contingent walked up
to the Bear Mountain camp. Leading the
reception committee was Roosevelt himself
with Chief Scout Executive James E. West,
BSA Executive Board member George
D. Pratt, and the New York Evening Mail
Publisher Henry L. Stoddard.
Lippman may have recognized Roosevelt’s Scoutlike demeanor
and generally affable personality, but he also recognized that New
Deal back-to-work programs resembled a series of BSA service
projects. The CWA, where formerly unemployed men and women
would “shovel snow, rake leaves, and clean up national parks
through the winter,” may
have been short-lived, but
it was effective at putting His life and his work are

workers at least for as long

Throughout the day full of speeches,
parades, demonstrations of knot-tying, a
fried chicken dinner, and bonfires, Chairman Roosevelt “led his
guests around the camp, hiking through campsites, talking about
their Scouting activities, and showing off the numerous teepee
tents resting on built-up wooden platforms.”

Roosevelt re-entered politics in dramatic fashion during the 1928
Democratic National Convention. Selected to nominate “Happy
Warrior” Alfred E. Smith as the nominee for president against
Republican Herbert Hoover, Roosevelt decided he would walk
to the podium at all cost. With help from his son Elliott, he did
just that –with smiles and waves to distract the attention of
convention-goers and the press from missteps.
That year, Roosevelt was elected 44th governor of New York,
setting the stage for his eventual run for the presidency against
Hoover four years later. His courage and devoted service to
Scouting led to his receipt of the 46th Silver Buffalo Award in 1930
– the same year President Hoover was so honored.
**
At Roosevelt’s Inaugural celebration on March 4, 1933, the
president-elect requested four specially selected Eagle Scouts
to be with him in the reviewing stand as well as “on the plaza in
front of the Capitol. The proud Chief Scout Executive James E.
West sent that news item to all the council presidents throughout
the country. And he tried to live Scouting’s principles of inclusion
throughout his presidency.
While the nation’s chief executive, Roosevelt appointed the
first Jewish Secretary of the Treasury in the person of Henry
Morganthau Jr., the son of the prominent New York real estate
mogul and diplomat. One of his most significant contributions
was to formulate the sale and marketing of war bonds to finance
America’s entry into World War II.
In July 1938, Roosevelt nominated another man of Jewish faith,
jurist Felix Frankfurter, to the position of associate justice of the
U.S. Supreme Court. Frankfurter was known for his assistance
in founding the American Civil Liberties Union. As a religious
group, 15% of President Roosevelt’s high office appointments
practiced Judaism when compared with only 3% of the American
population at the time.
On June 25, 1941, Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802 that
created the Fair Employment Practices Committee, which was
regarded as one of the most important pieces of legislation for
civil rights for African Americans since the end of the Civil War
and the Reconstruction period. Declaring racial discrimination in
the defense industry as patently illegal, it was the first piece of
federal action that promoted equal opportunity in the workplace.
“There is evidence available that needed workers have been
barred from industries engaged in defense production solely
because of considerations of race, creed, color or national origin,
to the detriment of workers’ morale and of national unity,” it
read, “I do hereby reaffirm the policy of the United States that
there shall be no discrimination in the employment of workers
in defense industries or government because of race, creed,
color, or national origin, and I do hereby declare that it is the
duty of employers and of labor organizations, in furtherance of
said policy and of this order, to provide for the full and equitable
participation of all workers in defense industries, without
discrimination because of race, creed, color, or national origin.”
As president, Roosevelt supported BSA through an annual radio
“Fireside Chat” in celebration of Scouting’s birthday. Nearly every
February during his Administration, Roosevelt offered his glowing
congratulations for the accomplishments of Scouting and best
wishes for the continuation of America’s most successful youth
development organization.

“I hope that the people who are listening to my voice will give
careful heed to this Scout Oath,” Roosevelt told the nation in
February 1935. “It is the basis of good citizenship.”
A few months later Roosevelt and Washington prepared to
open their doors to the national and international delegates
set to represent worldwide Scouting during BSA’s 1st National
Jamboree. But polio contagion fears obliged the cancelation of
the event, which was rescheduled for the summer of 1937.

invitation, the capital hosted 25,000

owners knew the service work Scouts performed was valuable
to the country. So, thousands of posters went up in storefronts
nationally for military recruiting and material collection drives.
Every two weeks, new posters went out to replace the old ones
with Scouts leading the charge.
Among other projects, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts led drives to
collect aluminum and other scrap metals, waste paper, clothing
and rubber. They planted trees and tended gardens. They served
as messengers and dispatch bearers, sold Defense Bonds and
Stamps, and collected musical instruments for servicemen in
Army camps.
As reported in the official history
of the event, at the base of the
Washington Monument, “Scouts
from everywhere met each other all
together for the first thrill of such a
meeting.”
Two days before the Jamboree
ended, on July 7, organizers staged
a parade that included President
Roosevelt himself, Chief Scout
Executive James E. West, and
National Scout Commissioner Dan
Beard, escorted by selected Eagle
Scouts. All three greeted the throngs
of Scouts, Scouters, and visitors
from the back seat of their open-air

available during the Jamboree, but one
of the most unusual was the balloon pin
sponsored by the Hutter-Lever Soap Company. The company was part of
the British soap company Lever Brothers. The Lever Brothers company
had recently bought into the Hutter soap company of Budapest. During
the Jamboree as the Jamboree Newspaper
article describes, less than one third of
the Scouts were given the opportunity
to place their name on a balloon and
release it. A Scout was given a metal
pin (bove) to recognize participation
in this event. The soap company
gave prizes for the balloons that
were reported to have traveled
the greatest distance. We don’t
know what the prizes were, but the
prevailing winds should have carried
the balloons to the east. The brass pin
was 42 mm in diameter.
After World War II Scouting was prohibited in Eastern Europe. With the
end of the “Cold War” in 1989, Scouting began to come back in Eastern
Europe and the old jamboree memorabilia came out of storage. Over
the last decade many difficult to find pre-1947 World Jamboree items
have been made available, including this wonderful balloon activity pin,
but most collectors do not know about the origins of the pin.

New Michigan Flaps
Two more of the new Michigan
lodges have issued flaps. The
By

Shores Field Service Council,
ISCA # 0018L
formed by the joining of Manitous
[email protected]
Lodge 88 (Great Sauk Trail Council)
and Nacha Mawat Lodge 373
(Southwest Michigan Council). We
understand that this lodge issued
two flaps simultaneously, a standard
uniform flap and a charter member
flap. Roy More, a lodge member, told
us he had seen a message from the
lodge advisor saying that the lodge
would consider the standard uniform
flap to be their first flap.
We have learned that the name Kishahtek can be translated
to “Northern Lights.” The totem of the new lodge is the Wolverine.
Later we saw flaps from Nataepu Shohpe Lodge (President
Ford Field Service Council) appear on eBay. This lodge was
formed by the joining of Nacha Tindey Lodge 25 (Gerald R. Ford
Council) and Indian Drum Lodge 152 (Scenic Trails Council).
The first one we saw sell on eBay brought a winning bid of $30.
Rich Turner sent us images of new flaps from Nentego Lodge
20 that note their council’s camps. The first for Rodney Scout
Reservation also says “Cheerful.” The second for Henson Scout
Reservation says “Brotherhood.” Henson is the new name for
Nanticoke SR, changed to honor a large donation. The third flap
is for the council’s new camp, Akridge Scout Reservation, and it
says “Service.” Each of these three flaps was issued at a lodge
weekend event.
Akridge SR is the first in-state camp for this council. Delaware
was thought to be the last state in the nation without a current
in-state camp. A separate flap was issued for the council’s 2012
Jamboree to mark the creation of the camp. Rich tells us the
camp is not actually open yet, with only three pavilions up, a lake,
and some signs.
Rich also reported to us that Nentego has issued two flaps to
support the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. The pink nonmylar flap had 250 made and sold for $5. A pink mylar flap had
100 made and sold for $25. One mylar flap was presented to
the breast cancer group and one was preserved in the lodge
collection.
A Kiminschi Lodge 542 F1 flap, unused but lightly stained, was
offered on eBay for $3,149 but drew no bid. The seller suggested
that a buyer could clean the stain and get a great badge at a
bargain price, but no one took on that opportunity. It was later
offered at reduced price but still no taker. The example of this
badge in the Dave Thomas collection was priced at $4,000.

and ZR1. The F1, a rarity 10 first
[email protected]
flap, had been sewn on the seller’s
shirt but remained relatively stiff.
The mint F1 in the Thomas collection
was priced at $4,750.
Also in October an un-cataloged
neckerchief from Seminole Lodge
85 appeared on eBay and sold for
$549. The neckerchief looked like
red cotton cloth with a white design
painted or inked with a stencil. In a round
circle a Native American was presented in profile.
Around the edge of the circle read the text “Seminole Lodge
85 WWW.” Rick Obermeyer wrote us about it and said an older
member of the lodge thinks he may have seen it before but
cannot place it. Two lodge chiefs from the 1960’s are not familiar
with it, suggesting it may date to before that decade.
The Manitous Lodge 88 S41 flap looks like a farewell flap. The
dates 1994-2012 mark the lodge’s existence, but all of the fires
on the ceremonial wheel appear to be extinguished or going out.
Rick Obermeyer of Tipisa Lodge 326 loaned us two unusual
insignia items. The first is a standard flap with sound system
attached to the back. When the center back of the flap is pushed,
it plays several measures of the OA Song. That’s loud and
startling if you aren’t expecting it (the voice of experience). Rick
tells us the song is normally sung slowly, like a hymn, but his
lodge sings it in a march tempo. It took a while for the lodge to
find a brisk version of the “Imperial Russian National Anthem,”
which is the tune of the OA Song.
The second item is large flap shaped pin made of several layers
of colored rubber. This makes a very colorful piece. Tipisa gives
a tip of the hat to Coosa Lodge 50 for the idea of a rubber flapshaped pin. Tipisa considers it a novelty pin, not a flap issue. It
is too small for uniform wear and comes with two clutch pins on
the back, making it suitable for wear on hats, jackets, or even
t-shirts. They plan to recommend that their Elangomats wear
them on t-shirts, for example.
Moswetuset Lodge 52 has issued 6 two-piece sets in
remembrance of its six predecessor lodges. These six lodges
were merged or absorbed to create Moswetuset 52. Each set
has a new Moswetuset flap and a chevron piece that shows the
name, totem, and dates of existence of one predecessor:
• Missituck Lodge 261, 1944-1958
• Menetomi Lodge 396, 1953-1958
• Souhegan Lodge 447, 1951-1958
• Kahagon Lodge 131, 1938-2000
• Taskiagi Lodge 261, 1958-1993
• King Philip Lodge, 1941-1993
We are guessing these sets are also marking Moswetuset’s
20th anniversary. Regardless, if you collect New England,
Massachusetts, or this lodge, you have 12 new needs.
A handmade felt badge described as being an Order of the
Rising Sun pre-OA society badge from Camp Baiting Hollow
sold on eBay in early November for $178. There was only one
bid at the minimum. The seller referenced the USScouts.org
honor society web page.
Charlie Davis traded us the farewell flap from White Horse
Lodge 21, soon to be merging with Talligewi Lodge 62. The flap
carries a striking design representing the “end of the trail.” It also
includes a red arrow metal pin attached with a rivet through the
back of the flap. We had not seen that done before with a rivet.
Charlie tells us the name of the new lodge to be formed is
Nguttitehen, pronounced “Goo-te-tay’-en.
Charles Jaxel reported on Patch-L that the new council formed
by the merger of Burlington County (Hunnikick Lodge 76) and
Southern New Jersey (Te’Kening Lodge 37) will be Garden
State Council, beginning January 1, 2013. Both OA lodges are
expected to carry on for 2013, with a new lodge to be formed
by 1/1/2014. They originally selected South Jersey Council as
the new name, but that was rejected by National because it had
been used before.
Ohlone Lodge 63 has been issuing flaps for its Northern California
Trade-O-Ree since 2008. For 2012 the flap incorporated the
leaping salmon from Mayi Lodge 354, a predecessor, in the
design. Previous trade-o-ree flaps used designs from Canaku
Lodge 511 (2011) and Pomponio Lodge 528 (2009). All of
these might be considered event flaps, not regular issues.
Trey Walls of Tonkawa Lodge 99 shared some information on
recent patches they have issued. The small NOAC 2012 pine
cone badge was given out by members at their Founder’s Day
booth. The pine cone was also used in the design their delegate
two-piece set. That set also represented the old cabin from their
former camp, Camp Tom Wooten. The pine trees are a symbol
of their new camp, Lost Pines SR. Their 75th anniversary flap
incorporates the Texas state flag into its background.
A question was raised on Patch-L about whether the act of
merging away has a significantly positive effect on the value
of badges of the now gone lodge. The response seemed to be
that the values depended mainly on how hard the old patches
were to begin with. One person commented on how common
the flaps from San Gorgonio Lodge 298 and Ahwahnee Lodge
430 were before they merged 40+ years ago, and that the value
of those flaps remains fairly low even now. He also pointed out
an eBay sale in October of a lot of 11 flaps for $73. Of the 11, 6
were from merged lodges, including Swatara Lodge 39, Wapsu
Achtu Lodge 343, and Shingis Lodge 497. There was a time
not long ago when a 497s1 would have commanded that value
by itself.
We are encouraged to see new traders getting engaged on
Facebook and elsewhere, but they seem primarily interested in
new issues. When offered a choice between nice older issues or
new, they seem to prefer the new. There also seems to be more
interest in active lodges, than merged ones.
In December a pair of flap varieties, the S9a and S9b from
Tsisqan Lodge 253, sold on eBay for $770 after 78 bids. There
were five main bidders, with one dropping out at $290, a second
dropping at $550, and the other non-winners giving up near the
winning bid. The winner entered two additional bids above the
one that actually won the lot, suggesting he or she was willing to
go much higher.
Data analysis on these varieties available to members on
oaimages.com does not seem to separate information for the
two. It shows four price points for the S9a up to December 2008.
It shows three price points for the S9b but these are identical to
three of those shown for the first variety. One of these varieties
is apparently very rare and several collectors had a strong desire
to own it.
Blue Book research for lodge names relied upon information
of all types, but the weightiest and most valuable information
was actual lodge documentation. An example of reliable lodge
documentation popped up on eBay in January. This was a
Vigil Honor certificate of membership from Yaqui Lodge 138,
dated September 23rd, 1956. The Blue Book notes this lodge
was chartered in 1938 and merged with Checote Lodge 154 in
1957 to form Daw-Zu Lodge 138. As we submitted this article
for publication, the certificate was bid up to $156 with over a day
to go.
Peter Glass reported on Patch-L that the 2013 Jamboree patches
for Old Colony Council and Tisquantum Lodge 164 are being
designed by Jeff Kinney, author of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” Mr.
Kinney also designed the lodge’s badges for the 2012 NOAC.
Stephen White sent us images of three Jamboree 2013 two-piece
sets that Illinek Lodge 132 issued on January 13. The three
sets go together to form a scene of a railroad bridge going from
morning, then noon, and on to night. The pocket pieces come
with button loops. The first set is for their council contingent troop
239. The second set shows the lodge insignia and is intended
for trading. The third set is for members on staff. The white stars
and moon on the third set are glow-in-the dark. They made 300
of each set and they will be sold initially only together. Closer to
the Jamboree they will consider a reorder of the contingent set
for those wanting more trading stock.
Just before our submission date in January, Gene Berman sent
out a message about the transition of the five lodges in New York
City merging together. The new lodge is to be named Kintecoying
Lodge 4, with the name interpreted to mean “Crossroads of
Nations.” Astor Place in the city used to be named Kintecoying
and was a powwow point for the Lenape tribes of Manhattan. At
this spot where trails converged the Lenapes traded, exchanged
news, held spiritual ceremonies, and tribal councils. The name
also refers to the modern city as a cultural melting pot, and a
global trade and financial hub.
The new lodge will use the number 4 in reference to the 93 year
history of the Order in the city. The lodge totem is the peregrine
falcon, symbol of strength and a bird native to New York City,
where it can be found nesting on bridges and skyscrapers.
The first flap is being designed by a contest and the winning entry
will be unveiled at the lodge’s “Day One” event April 13, 2013.
Last time we described a NOAC 2012 flap from Woapalanne
Lodge 43 and listed it as the S22. Frank Caccavale wrote to
correct us, saying that flap was their s28. Our error illustrates the
18
ISCA JOURNAL - MARCH 2013
lack of information we all have to deal with at times.
We have been asked to provide catalog numbers for new issues
when we describe them. If possible we ask people from whom
we get an image or badge to give us the catalog number, but
usually they don’t know. We fall back on trying to extrapolate a
Blue Book catalog number from what we can see on oaimages.
com or from the online Blue Book. In this particular case, Frank
tells us that oaimages.com was missing 8 of his lodge’s flaps.
Don’t take our catalog numbers as the final word. They are just
our best estimate at the time of submission.
We were thinking about side or alternative OA collections and
came up this one. Does anyone collect national OA by membership
card, one card from each lodge? If so, we like to hear how that is
going. Another might be OA lodges by neckerchief slide. It seems
like many, if not most, OA lodges existing prior to the 1990 have
at least one neckerchief slide associated with them.
Quick comments:
•
•
The Eswau Huppeday Lodge 560s60 flap for the
2012 Dixie fellowship seems to show a silhouette of
Sasquatch walking among the trees in the night scene.
What looks like a new flap from Quapaw Lodge 160
has the number “413” on a setting sun and a Native
American on horseback raising a pipe in salute to the
sun, all possibly in reference to the absorption of Hi’lo
Ha Chy’a-la Lodge 413.

Collecting Camp Patches
Rehabilitation For Camp Patches
The term “boxsoil” has been
By
used in our
Bob Sherman hobby for many
ISCA 0490
years. It refers
[email protected] to the dinginess
and
discoloration that sometimes occurs to
older twill-type patches, usually with white or light-colored
backgrounds. Older camp
and other types of patches are susceptible to this
condition, whether or not
they ever saw the inside
of a box. I am sure it is primarily caused by excessive
handling, exposure to contaminants in the air, age and, I suppose, soiled boxes.
I have an effective treatment for this
condition that I would like to share with my
loyal readers. A while ago, I saw a box
of OxiClean stain-removing powder on my
wife’s laundry shelf. I did an experiment
with an old box-soiled camporee patch as I
did not know what would happen and I did
not want to risk ruining a valuable patch. To make a long story short, the patch
came out almost like new so I tried it with a
few more and it worked like magic.
My regimen is to use a designated plastic
container (the stuff can be toxic to ingest
so I recommend not using a container that
will be used for food in the future), halffill it with hot water from the tap, add a
half scoop of OxiClean to the water – stir
it up with a plastic utensil (also not to be
reused for food), add the soiled patches,
watch it foam up, stir occasionally with the
plastic utensil (my wife calls the contents
of this plastic container “patch stew”) and
after an hour, discard the dirty water, rinse
patches in cold water a few times, lay the
patches on a flat hard surface, cover with
a clean white towel and put weights on top
to press them flat (I found that my wife’s
math textbooks worked very well).
When the patches are dry, they are almost
like new. Here are a few before and after
examples from my most recent batch of
patch stew. I caution everyone to treat
OxiClean carefully and respectfully – I
wear eye protection and rubber gloves
when I work with it as it could be irritating to
the eyes or skin. To date, I have not
tried it on felt patches or camp
patches with metallic thread
as they caution against using
it on some materials. As a
disclaimer, I have no financial
interest in OxiClean. In
my
previous
column, I described
a
chenille
camp
patch and asked if anyone
knew of any others. John
Hoffman of VA wrote that
he has a 1930’s CAMP
UMBSTATTER
chenille
(left) from Allegheny County,
West Council in PA. John’s
is probably the earliest camp
chenille but does anyone have any
others? BTW, the name of the Council is Allegheny County, West (1928-1943).
Kevin Rudesill from WA sent a copy of a
1922 booklet from CAMP HEAP-MUCHFUN owned by Fort Dodge Council in
Iowa. The camp was located in Dolliver
State Park. Kevin has done some
excellent research on many of the earliest
camps from the Northwestern part of the
US and is one of my go-to guys whenever
I have a question about a camp from that
area. Kevin offered me a good tip in doing
early camp research – since the archives
of many newspapers are being posted
electronically on line, it is now possible to
search newspapers from the early years
of Scouting by doing a computer search
for “Boy Scout Camp” or for the local
Council name. Several years ago at a Philadelphia
TOR, I acquired 3 old felt patches from
GREENWOOD CAMP dated 1954, 55
and 56. The 1956 patch said it was the
23rd year of the camp so doing the math
means the camp opened in 1934. The
person I received them from did not know
anything about them or even if they were
BSA camps. I knew Detroit Area Council
had a Camp Greenwood so I assumed
they were from there. However, with
the help of David Fry of PA, I was able
to make a positive ID. They are from
Appalachian Trail Council (1941-1970) in
PA. Larry has a 1937 felt patch that he
received from a Scoutmaster in his town
that went to Greenwood as a Scout. He
22
also sent me a copy of a publication
from the late 1930’s that
describes Camp Greenwood
as being affiliated with
Schuylkill (County) Council
(1930-1941), the predecessor
of Appalachian Trail Council. Larry said that the camp was
actually owned by the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation Company
but was used as a summer camp for
Scouts and other groups. Larry’s patch
is a round green felt with a large red felt
G and 37. My
1956 is white felt
with dark green
silkscreening.
Larry Faulkner of
AL is very active
with the restoration
of CAMP TRANQUILITY
that
was
controlled by both the Birmingham Area Council and Black Warrior
Council. It built in 1937 by the WPA and
the CCC and is currently an independent
camp run by Crew 50 and Troop 2 of the
Greater Alabama Council. For more information, you can visit their website at www.
camptranquility.net.
Larry also sent me a scan of a 1942
orange felt arrowhead shaped patch
from SEMINOLE DISTRICT CAMP from
Choctaw Area Council. This
is one of the earliest dated
SSC (Segregated Scout
Camp) patches from the
South. Larry said it
was located on US
Highway 80 near
Toomsuba,
MS,
about 3 miles from
the AL State line.
Doug Henkele from
TX, the webmaster
of my favorite website
campimages.com, sent
a scan of a great old patch. It is a 1916 BLYTHEBURN
BOY SCOUT CAMP patch
from Wilkes-Barre Council (1915-1924)
which was a simple white felt block letter
B. Cynical readers might question this

ID as the B could have
come from any one of a
hundred camps that began
with the letter B. However,
this patch also came with
a letter written in 1916
on Wilkes-Barre Council
stationary that specifically
identified this patch as
coming from Blytheburn Boy Scout Camp.
I wish every old mystery patch would
come with such great identification. Randy Holden from NJ sent me a scan of
a previously unknown camp that is BSA. It is from CAMP OUANANOCK. A Google
search did not reveal any info on this
camp. Does anyone
recognize
this
camp
name
and can ID
where it is
from?
D i c k
Cordes from
NY sent an
article about
the sale of CAMP
STRAKE
owned
by Sam Houston Council. Apparently
attendance has been dropping at the
camp so the Council’s Executive Board
voted to sell the property and use the
proceeds to purchase at least 1000 acres
in a less-urbanized environment within a 2
hour drive from downtown Houston. They
have plans to build a state-of-the-art camp
for the 21st Century that would include a
skateboard park, BMX bike facility and
STEM (science, technology, energy and
math) center. I wish them well. I much
prefer stories about building a new camp
or improving an existing camp than stories
about selling camp properties.
Mitch Reis from CT sent scans of some
patches that need identification. One
is a red bordered felt round with a red
arrowhead and crossed arrows on a blue
felt background (MP-13-1-1, below). The
others are a set of 3 white on red felts with
an overlapping C and S. One has a 2
and another has a 4 (MP-13-1-2, below). Mitch said they came with other Scout
material.
Rich Shields of NC sent a heavy white
cloth patch with a diamond around the
letters CB (MP-13-1-3, below) that needs
identification. He said it came with some
Del-Mar-Va and Chester County Council
items.
Andy Dubill of KS, a former columnist of
this publication (I miss his column) sent
scans of two patches from one shirt that
he would like to
share with our
readers. The
shirt is from
Wichita,
KS. On one pocket
was a blue and
yellow teepeeshaped felt with
a T and a curved
bar (MP-13-1-4, above). There were three
possibilities to consider from “The Camp
Book II” - Wichita Council (1918-1940)
had 3 camps that began with the letter
T - CAMP TA-WA-KO-NI from 1919-late
1930’s, CAMP TA-WA-SEN-THA from the
1930’s and CAMP TA-LA-HI from 19271935. Apparently, they had a surplus of
hyphens in Wichita back in the 1920’s and
30’s. felt
acorn-shaped
patch that says
“MERRY MEN 24”
(MP-13-1-5, right). I don’t know if there
was a Sherwood
Forest in the Wichita
area. Does anyone
know what this patch
was for?
No column would be complete without a few
Mystery Patches that need identification. Peter Glass from MA sent me a scan of an
orange felt arrowhead with a blue Native
American and a gold metallic star (MP13-1-6). Mike Candell of PA sent purple
felt “O” with a yellow felt teepee inside the
“O” (MP-13-1-7). Mike said it came with
some items from Missouri. The ID card
from 1930 said the Scout was from Slater,
MO so he was wondering if this is an early
Osceola issue. I would like to refer all readers to check
out the “whatsit” section of campimages.
com as there are many potential BSA
camp patches that need an ID. I have
been sending Doug Henkele a number
of scans from my collection that were not
pictured on this site and I would encourage
all readers to do likewise. My goal is to
make this site as comprehensive for camp
patch issues as John Pannell’s site is for
OA issues. Doug has over 20,000 images
on the site so far.
MYSTERY PATCHES
Jim Allman from KS made the ID of this
patch. He reported that in Mike Erickson’s
book “Boy Scout Camps of South-Central
Kansas”, the teepee shaped patch is
from CAMP TA-WA-KO-NI near Augusta,
KS circa 1937. The one line under the T
indicates this was a first-year camper.
The other patch was on the sleeve of
Andy’s shirt and was a black and orange

HAPPY TRAILS
Abraham Lincoln & His Legacy on
Hiking Trails
By
Larry Faulkner
ISCA #7708
With the 150th Anniversary of the
Civil War in full swing and the rave
reviews for Steven Spielberg’s
cinema offering “Lincoln,” there
[email protected]
could not be a better time to
examine the impact this great
American leader had on Boy Scout trails throughout the Midwest
and East Coast. So popular is President Lincoln that over 20
trails sprang up in six states each providing a special Trail Medal
for completing the trek. His impact was felt in his home state of
Kentucky up through his middle youth and young adulthood in
Indiana and on to Illinois, where he made a name for himself.
The trails named for President Lincoln are listed below by State:

Lincoln Trail (NCAC)
The oldest of the trails is the Abraham Lincoln Illinois Trail. Their
trail can be dated back to November 6, 1926 and featured a
red, white, and blue Ribbon with a brass suspended medal that
had a silhouette of Abraham Lincoln and the dates 1809-1865.
The trail ran 20 miles from New Salem, IL to Springfield, IL –
the same route that Lincoln used to walk as a youth to borrow
books so that he might continue the study of law. In 1959 a
special Sesquicentennial Medal was produced looking like the
normal medal but with a Top Bar indicating the dates 1809 –
1959. Around 1970 the Trail Medal was changed to reflect
Lincoln walking down the road reading a law book that was more
in keeping with the purpose of the trail. It is sponsored by the
Abraham Lincoln Council in Springfield.
Another trail with a long history was the Kentucky Lincoln
Trail that started in August 1942 and was sponsored by the
Zit-Kala-Sha Lodge. A monster of a trail, it ran 32 miles from
Elizabethtown through a scenic mountainous section of Kentucky
to Hodgenville. It was an overnight trek that required the Scouts
to camp Lincoln’s boyhood home near Knob Creek. This traile
was easily the toughest of the trails to complete. The medal
associated with this trail had various colored ribbons – the most
common being a Brown & Yellow on with a pewter colored bust
of Lincoln that said “Abraham Lincoln – Born Feb12th, 1809.”
The Medal looked much like the penny which bears his likeness.

Lincoln Trail Medals
In Indiana, Lincoln spent his youthful years that coincided with
the age of Cub, Boy, and Venture Scouts. The Indiana Historical
Commission in conjunction with the Buffalo Trace Council in
Evansville, IN created this 17.1 mile followed the trek of Lincoln’s
family to their new Indiana home. A beautiful medal was awarded
showing Lincoln reading in front of a fireplace. This medal has
also recreated for the Bicentennial Encampment celebrating
Lincoln’s 200th birthday in 2008.

In Decatur, IL was one of the most popular Lincoln Trails –
the Lincoln Homesite Trail (originally named the Homestead
Trail but changed). It ran 20 miles in length from Decatur to
the Sangamon River, circumnavigating the river to the site
of Lincoln’s home in Macon County – Harristown and then
returning to the log cabin in Fairview Park where Lincoln
practiced law.
Hobby Trends
Tipping Point
by Roy More , ISCA # 0020L
A realtor friend of mine once said she was told, when asked “How
is the real estate market?” to answer “Unbelievable.” It could be
unbelievably good. Or, it could be unbelievably bad!
This thought comes to mind based upon conversations I have
had over the past year with senior collectors and dealers. This
may be heresy as a patch dealer but here goes – We have
passed the point where councils and lodges are making more
patches than our wallets can afford. I mark it as heresy that as
a dealer and market maker some think we should always be
upbeat and optimistic. We are. When we’re talking about true
collectibles. But much of what is coming out now feels more like
Beanie Babies than collectibles.
Now with the trend towards filling in a collection these items can
be sought after. Collectors are focusing on a few local lodges and
councils but collecting everything related to them not just cloth.
This is a VERY positive and powerful trend.
Muscogee Lodge 221 neckerchief slide brought $203.
How many times have you attended trade-o-rees and seen
tables full of OA two-piece sets or stacks of new special issue
CSPs? Too many times in my opinion.
In economics there is a theory called Gresham’s Law. It dates
back to the 1500’s although a good Wikipedia search shows
references back to ancient Greece. This law states that bad
money drives out good. It has to do with the debasement of
currencies by governments in order to spend more but there
is a parallel in hobbies. It has happened to the aforementioned
Beanie Babies but also to baseball cards, Hummel figurines,
animation art cells and other collectibles. Its where the makers
of the collectibles have turned up the printing presses for a short
term gain but at the long-term detriment.
Now all is not lost and I’ll get into that but as some perspective,
last year we sent out over 5,000 orders of patches; more than 100
per week representing over 20,000 patches. That is an indication
of a strong hobby but there are cross currents. Collectors are
coming into the hobby arguably at a faster rate than they are
leaving. But if all that they see is modern, mass-produced items
then that will be their focus. The mass-produced patches have
driven under the table or back into the box the good vintage
patches. The good patches are good because they were made to
be used as recognition within the Scouting program. They were
worn. They were coveted. They were limited in their production
and distribution.
Yaqui Lodge 138 Vigil certificate brought $960.
But what the ‘bad driving out the good’ is doing is allowing many
true rarities to pass as bargains because most folks do not know
how rare they are because they never see them.
This is not the first time our hobby has created collectibles for the
sake of trading. Those of us old enough to remember the 1985
National Jamboree remember how hat-pins were the rage. Now
they are hard to give away. Scout mugs used to be quite popular
but now are not worth the cost of shipping. Same can be said for
most handbooks after 1920. But OA Caldwell pins that could be
bought for $100 - $200 in 1985 can sell for ten to twenty times as
much today. True collectibles win out.
1937
National
Jamboree
Poster
brought
$761.
One can have fun with the modern items. I have many in my
collection and enjoy picking them up but I realize they are not
where the value is or will be. If they come my way, great but if
they don’t oh well. What needs to happen is for these patches to
no longer be profitable for the producers.
So what is positive that is happening within the hobby? What I
and my team see is with so much out there Scouting collectors
are going for depth rather than breadth. Collectors are looking
to put the story with the patches. They are rounding out their
collections. What used to be ancillary items that were overlooked
are bringing what might be surprising prices. See pictures 1, 2
and 3. In days past these would not have had much interest.

ISCA JOURNAL - MARCH 2013
Gimogash Lodge 214 X2
Wah-pe-kah-me-kunk
Lodge 512 X1 brought
$750.
Kola Lodge 464
Vigil Caldwell totem
pin
This item sold for $750 at auction with one bidder. Prior prices
for this have been $3,500 or more. It will likely bring this again
as these were used by the lodge’s 1956 NOAC contingent and is
the first patch from the lodge. There are likely less than ten (10)
ever made and issued. As issued on neckerchief it is even rarer.
But most collectors do not know this. Unless we, the hobby, tell
them and show them.
The best items are most likely to be privately placed. Examples
we moved this year that did not see the light of day include a 214
X2 at $18,000 and a Lodge 464 Vigil totem pin at $5,000 and
many other four and five figure patches. That is often the way it
is with high-end collectibles. The best pieces are handled by the
best dealers as they know the value and the buyer
Last year the National Order of the Arrow Conference gave
more space than ever before to a museum exhibit. Leaders in
the hobby, adult and youth, brought together a great display
and great history but we need to do this better and more often.
Display your collections at council and lodge events but include
more than just frames of patches. Tell the story of how they were
used, when they were issued and their connection to Scouting.
In the on-line OA Blue Book one can now post comments for
each issue. Why? To capture and re-tell this history. Anyone can
contribute. If you want this hobby to not become Beanie Babies,
you need to give back.
