I have put together these coin pages because it was coin collecting that linked me to scouting back in 1959. Today, I am still a coin collector and have been a scout leader for over 20 years.
I want to thank Brian "Sully" Sullivan for providing me with several of these merit badge images. Scouters who go out of their way to help others are always appreciated.
The dates for the merit badges are "to the best of my knowledge." If you know have better information, please let me know. Thank you.
