Type 8 Merit Badge PAMPHLETS
 
Type 8 Merit Badge Pamphlets History
 
Thin line Thick line


The main difference found on the Type 8 merit badge pamphlets are the thickeness of the border around the merit badge found on the pamphlet.  The 1972 thru 1975 pamphlets have a thinner border while starting in late 1975, and 1976 for others, the border is thicker.  This is sometimes the only noticeable change on these pamphlets. This does not warrant a picture for each change and thus, those that appear below have more than the border difference changed; usually the merit badge design on the inside.

Some pamphlets are found in a paler yellowish coloring than others, but this is not a recognized variatoin as it seems to be a printing flaw where all of the pamphlets from that printing display the same shading variation.
