Seeking to Liquidate my 70s Patch Collection

Recommended Posts

Morning all!

 

I am looking to sell my entire patch/memorabilia collection. I have photo albums on Yahoo you may peruse at the link listed below...

 

This is my own patch collection, which has sat buried in the basement since the late 70s, not to see the light again until October of this year. I acquired every single one of these patches, books, scarves and other memorabilia between 1971 and 1978.

 

This list is a work in progress. Unless indicated otherwise, none of these patches has ever been worn and are MINT or Near-MINT. Nearly all of these patches were put into the folders as soon as I got them. Only a very few of the patches were ever worn and are indicated as such. Same for some of the neckerchiefs and slides. You should be able to clearly see any damage in the pictures. Those patches that do show damage are basically stained. As I am NOT sure how to go about treating them, I am pretty much selling them As-Is.

 

This entire patch collection is available for viewing at:

I can be contacted for questions at:

 

Friend_otter@yahoo.com

 

NOTE! - Some of my pictures show a smudge. This is ***NOT*** a stain; rather it is due to an inspection of the camera lens by our ferret.

ALSO! The Photo Albums are organized a bit differently than the text list. I grouped several sections together in making each folder. However I have no doubt you will find what you seek as you go along.

AND! I have not been able to completely identify a number of the patches- I could find nothing to match them with.

 

You are welcome to make offers for individual patches, however we are not interested in selling the entire bunch at a discount to re-sellers.

 

Hope this posting meets the standards of the site!

kajm, welcome to our forum!

Nice collection! If you want to sell your items, your best bet is probably eBay. Thousands of Scouting items sell each day.

*nods* Yep, that is the way I plan to go in a week or so. My initial intent is to give anyone a chance who wants to buy direct from me if they happen to belong to the Troop / Lodge that any of these belong to. My wife and I eBay quite a bit of stuff already and they'll be heading there next.

 

Thanks for responding!

Are you familiar with Patch-L? There are 700-800 collectors on that list and some of them may be looking for precisely the items you have. You can't make an offer to buy or sell directly on the list, but you can post your URL and ask if anyone is interested to contact you offline.

I'm not a patch collector, but looking over your collection did bring back memories of events and days gone by.

For most of the time that your collection covers I was still Scouting back home in Merry olde England. But was courting Her Who Must Be Obeyed!! So I was spending a lot of time on this side of the pond.

I'm sure if looking at the photos stirred up my memories I'll bet looking at them must have really did a number on you.

Good Luck with the sale.

Eamonn.

Trevorum: I wondered how that site worked. However I hit two on Yahoo groups, and I'd swear I now know what a shark attack feels like :p

 

Thanks for the tips!

 

Eamonn: They do bring back memories!

 

I got a chance to see part of England during the Eclipse in '99. I'll get back there with my wife someday.
