Hi everyone! My grandfather recently passed and left me his entire OA & BSA patch collection! I'm interested in learning more about it and was hoping you all could help? Glad to be here, looking forward to learn more about these!

Regarding your grandfather's collection, depending upon where in NC you are at, I may have friends who can give you some info. PM if you need contact info.

There are also patch collector groups on Facebook who may be able to help.

PirateLou:  Sit ye down and welcome to the virtual crackerbarrel.

There you have true family history. Obviously very important to your grandfather.  As has  been said, there are FB and online groups for BSA patches and badges .

 

If they appear to be (or you know ) mainly from NC , contact the local BSA Councils . I daresay you will find folks that can give you some info about the provenance (love that word) of your items.   Camps that have been closed and sold,  events , awards,  items given to your Gfather by friends and folks he passed on the trail of his life.  

 

Scrapbooking?   Display boards?  Family reunions?  Scout reunions?
