SESCAL Scouts Earn Stamp Collecting Merit Badge

Nine scouts from around Los Angeles earned their Stamp Collecting Merit Badge at SESCAL 2012 yesterday thanks to the support and genorosity of the American Philatelic Society, American Topical Association, The Los Angeles Philatelic Society and the National Stamp Dealers Association.

Scouts received tongs, stamps, hinges, mounts and a 3-ring binder full of information on a variety of philatelic topics such as removing adhesive stamps from paper. They also visited several dealers tables at the bourse, learned about stamp auctions and spent time at the exhibit area.

Shown with the scouts is Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselor Don Schilling who is the publisher and editor of The Roundup.

SESCAL 2012 continues today at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton.
