  1. Was given some great info the Master Guide Award is the highest you can receive as a Pathfinder and this patch is likely from the 1950s thru 60s and they are tough to come by.

  8. Found it in So Cal the family I got it from found it buried in a closet in a trunk at their fathers home.
  9. Can't wait for the new movie!!

  23. Thanks ho2 I'm not exactly sure either what it is I just like the Old School Air Planes got me thinking of the Red Baron!!
  24. Thanks Cindi I guess it would be a Yarn Tapestry? I just couldn't decide what category it fits into.
  25. Hey Kathy that Link isn't working anymore but thanks for the effort.
  26. Thanks Kathy much appreciated. I was told this may be a WW1 era USNR Button but not sure yet.
