Paraphernalia consisting of my knife which was very old at the time I got it. My Boy Scout book, which is the 7th edition, 2nd printing. You all, that know these old Boy Scout books, can probably date this book to the exact month. And from that which is pictured, is a one-person Coleman stove which I'm gonna post separately. And it is the one piece that does not go all the way back to the 60's. It was purchased a few years later but is still old. Looking at this Boy Scout book, back at age 12 or so when I was in the scouts, I was a serious collector of "stickers" Most of those I collected were automotive in nature. STP Oil stickers, Champion Spark plugs and I remember one that was really cool was "Hookers Headers". I had maybe two hundred different stickers which should be around somewhere in all of my junk today. Where?, I don't know, but anyway, The Rislone Racing sticker that's on my Boy Scout book was one that I had more than 4 of. I made it a point to try and get at least 4 stickers every time stickers were available. I bet I wrote to 20-30 different companies trying to coax them into sending a kid some stickers. Believe it or not many of those companies did send stickers to me. And the ones I had plenty of, like this one on the book would get stuck here and there. All my school notebooks had stickers on them. My school locker, my bike, everything was a sticker area. I'm sure that all those stickers would be worth some money today because some were downright scarce and I was constantly being asked if I wanted to sell this sticker or that one. Somewhere I have that original "sticker collection" and of course they were still pristine with the paper on the back still in place. In other words, they were "un-stuck" stickers. But anyway......
