HARD COVER Type HCI Merit Badge BOOKS
 
HARD COVER Type HCI Merit Badge BOOK History
 

Hard Cover Type HCI is distiguished by the Boy Scout in long pants and long sleeve shirt with a garrison cap on and his arms by his side.  The background shows the left side of the cover in a khaki tan, the right side of the cover in red, with the words BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA all in capital letters in black like the title.

HCI covers are broken into two variations; these variations are not due to cover or back cover variations but rather are for the variation of contents within the book.  Variation 1 contains Type 5 pamphlets while Variation 2 contains Type 6 pamphlets. The HCI cover type however does have a blank back cover with a flat spine for both variations.

Shown below are the known covers to exist by this author and should not be interpreted as representing the complete collection. As new titles are found, and confirmed, they will be added.
