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

Hard Cover Type HCT is distiguished by its orange cover and a Boy Scout with a backpack on in green and red.  Near the bottom right corner of the front cover is a representation of the the title's merit badge, and unlike the HCS variety which has a green square background, the HCT variety does not have the green background.

HCT covers come in two variations; both with Type 8 merit badge pamphlets within and the same green colored FLB marking on the back cover. The main difference is the color intensity of the Boy Scout on the front cover where Variation 1 (similar to the Type HCS covers) has the Boy Scout in green and red where Variation 2 has a distinguishable and obvious heavier and darker coloring of the green and red colors

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.
