Over the years there has been many booklets and publications written on various aspects of Scouting Memorabillia & Collectibles. Far from just being about patches, the enjoyable hobby now covers almost a century of gear, literature, and some very highly priced items. With over 5 million current members and many more alumni in the United States alone, it is no wonder that Scout antiques and collectibles has spawned a community of full time dealers and thousands of Trade-O-Rees, web sites, and auctions.Unfortunately most of the published literature that has been printed were either on obscure topics or covered only one small aspect of collecting like "Order of the Arrow Lodge Flaps" and nearly all of them looked like someone printed them in their basement on the same printing press that B-P must have used when he started the Scouting movement.Kraus Publications is a major publisher on a wide range of Collectible topics that go way beyond Scouting. George Cuhaj is a Scouter himself and he has, if nothing else, been the first person to write a professional looking book that bridges the area of Scouting Collectibles to the much larger community of antiques and Collectibles dealers & collectors of all types.Don't think of this book as having photos or even listings of every patch, artifact, pin, or mug. Were one person to undertake such an effort it would fill an entire encyclopedia of books. The prices quoted in the book may or may not be accurate for a given item, especially with the explosion of new trading & biding done on & eBay auctions.
