Scouting Collectibles

Posted in | Comments Off

Scouting has been an essential part of Americana since its founding in the early 1900′s.  Although it originated in the United Kingdom, it quickly gained popularity with boys and their Dads in the United States.

With all the history behind scouting, it is no surprise that people collect memorabilia relating to Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.  Thousands of items can be collected, including uniforms, pins, patches, pinewood derby cars, books and many others. Many collectables are official BSA items while others are handmade by local troops or packs.
