Boy Scout patch history – Teens era Combined Ranks

The Scout Patch Auction (TSPA) interviews veteran Boy Scout memorabilia collectors where they discuss specific aspects and history of the hobby and the Scouting movement. We call these Master Class Expert Series.

In this one, Michael Feigenbaum, who was a graphic artist for the Boy Scouts of America, discusses the history of the first BSA cloth rank badges. These badges could also include the Scout’s patrol position all into one patch. These were only used for a very short time ending in the mid-1920s.
