Onteora Neckerchiefs

Onteora Scout Neckerchiefs

Just like with patches, there are plenty of different neckerchiefs to keep collectors busy. I've shown my own here as well as some images of ones that slipped past me - so far! Sorry for the "glare" on some of these; if they're in a plastic bag I left them sealed.

One other comment. I scanned these neckerchiefs years ago when file sizes were usually kept low both for space and for download times. I hope to redo these in larger sizes in the future.

Please let me know if you have any neckerchiefs not shown - even a scan would be appreciated.
