The Lone Scouts of America, started by Hearst to compete with the Boy Scouts of America, existed until 1924. In 1924, the Lone Scouts of America were merged into the Boy Scouts of America and the Lone Scout division was created. Lone Scouts were not part of a troop, usually because they lived in rural areas. There are many pins, medals and some patches from the Lone Scouts of America. We have a great collection which will be posted to this category soon. Scout Stuff 4 Sale is pleased to provide you with rare Boy Scout Memorabilia.
