Type 5A "WARTIME" Merit Badge PAMPHLETS
 
Type 5A WARTIME Merit Badge Pamphlets History
 

Type 5A Merit Badge Pamphlets - also known as WARTIME Merit Badge Pamphlets  books were produced for about a 6 month period from March of 1944 to July of 1944.  They are distinctly identified by their heavier cover stock as well as the "A WARTIME BOOK" printing on the back cover (where subsequent versions were of a lighter card stock and for a number of years were blank on the back). An enlarged sample of the printing on the back cover is shown to the left.

Only one printing for the 84 titles exist and those that are shown here can be confirmed, all others shown are assumed to exist according to numerous reliable sorurces.
