Before the late teens, Scous would wear their merit badges on the sleeve of their uniform. In the Late teen's, the merit badge sash was introduced. Scouts were only supposed to put their merit badges on the sash, but many put their rank patches, pins, medals and camp patches on the front and back too. These sashes present a pictorial history of a Scout's achievements. They are very neat to look at and enjoy. Because a lot of memorabilia could be on them, they can also cost a lot of money because their value is the combined value of each item on the sash. Scout Stuff 4 Sale is pleased to provide you with rare Boy Scout Memorabilia.
