Late 70s BSA Patch Vest
« on: March 28, 2014, 07:59:54 PM »
Picked this a few years ago in El Paso. Unfortunately it came from the brother of the scout. The scout had gone down a different path in adult hood and was out of touch. This vest was saved by his father and I bought it at the estates sale.

Enjoy!

Sweet,

That one has 2 of the older Gila Lodge Order of the Arrow lodge flaps and the old OA Jacket patch.  That is awesome...

I always liked it, probably why I have not tried hard to sell it. I had it hanging up at the Shriners antique show a few years ago and no one even asked a price :o

Ok now you did it.  I'm going to have to get out my red wool jacket with my Pilmont patch, bull, OA patch and 1973 National Jamboree Patch on it.

That's an impressive Scout vest....some young man worked hard for those badges! :)
