Something new and exciting! A Boy Scout Pennant. This one has the classic "do a good deed daily". Scouts helping elderly women cross the street. In the cartoons the scout would get hit with an umbrella as the woman did not actually want to cross the street. I am certain there are a few other good deeds that could be done. Sadly as a union employee I am not allowed to do good deeds unless I am paid and then it is not actually a good deed. I think I will pass on a time estimate for this but it is vintage as it has felt patina. Well it looks vintage.
Next up is a Brooklyn Boy Scout Marksmanship Program patch. This is a bit easier to date as it has no plastic backing and is neatly stitched at the border. Early patches have rough edges and later patches have a plastic backing so I will go with 1960s on this. Patches like this and camp patches are worn on the right pocket. These are the only type of patch that can be traded.
Got an excellent little car coming up for Matchbox Monday so stay tuned!
