Getting Started in Patch Collecting

Welcome to the "Getting Started Collecting" series of articles. These short articles were compiled by various ISCA members in order to introduce folks to the various aspect of Scout patch collecting. They are available here for your free reading and use. As long as the text is not altered in any way, please feel free to print and distrubet these to others. All articles are in pdf format.

If you choose to become an ISCA member, you can optionally be mailed our journal every quarter and will also have access to our "members only" area where you can see what other members collect and can then contact them.

Visit our web site often, as we will be adding more information all of the time. We hope we will see you at Trade-O-Rees, Jamborees, NOACs, conclaves, and every other place where Scouts get together and trade patches and Scouting memorabilia.
