This is a 1940s Sterling silver Eagle Scout - Be Prepared pin/medal. The medal is stamped sterling on the back of the Be Prepared portion of the medal under the ribbon. The ribbon has discolored and not in a great shape... I bought this together with several other medals from a local dealer. I don't know much about medals, but I like the sentiment attached to them. They represent someone's achievement and I like that. This one is in a rough shape, which tells me it was worn proudly and enjoyed... Not hidden in a box somewhere.

    When I was in the service we used to say the difference between us and the Boy Scouts was"they had adult supervision"

    Oh I wish we had grammar and spell check....HUNTER! Help! there...not their. I am embarrassed. My mom was a high-school English teacher. I worked as a writer for a newspaper in the late 80's before spell-check and she very politely pointed out my errors. She was always nice about it but to this day - I can not write without sounding like a snob or a complete idiot - and usually both, same time.
