My Favorite Patch Became Lunch

My Favorite Patch Became Lunch

One night about 15 years ago (maybe longer!) I got a call from Destry Hoffard from Michigan.  I remember it very clearly because my wife was working the late shift at the newspaper and I was home alone.  He said that they had just gotten in a collection and there was a patch in there that I would probably be interested in.  He said they got a 1936 Camp Coker patch (felt with chain stitch).  I asked how much they were asking for it and he said a buck and a half (patch talk for $150).  I quickly sealed the...

The PAGE System Explained

I just returned from the National Order of the Arrow Conference and realized something every important about the product that I sell while there for 10 days.

The key to this system is that your items go in envelopes that side load into the pages to create an attractive and archival safe way to display and store your collection. I hope this quick video explains the system and how I...
