Type 2 merit badge pamphlets standardized on the design
and size of the merit badge pamphlets and are similar to
the type 1 pamphlets only in the fact that they are
printed in black and white on white paper.
The Type 2 pamphlets maintain a central theme and layout
of the pamphlet cover and were available genrally
between 1920 and 1924 before the introduction of the
first tan cover pamphlets. Ironically, there are some
instances where a Type 2 pamphlet was turned into a Type
3 pamphlet simply by wrapping it with a tan cover on top
of the the type 2 pamphlet.
