Type 9 merit badge pamphlets were
one of the longest running styles, running for over 37 years
(late 1979 thru early 2008). Some variations exist,
namely the 2006 and 2007 versions where the 2006 merit
badges in the upper left corner went thru some design
changes, and 2007 merit badges in the upper left corner
were redesigned with thicker borders.
Also of interesting note, sometime during 1993, the "BOY
SCOUTS OF AMERICA MERIT BADGE SERIES" wording in the red
box near the lower right went thru a font change. Some
pamphlets did not reflect the change until as late as
the 1995 printings. This is not considered a significant
variation and is not noted below but is mentioned here
for trivial interest.
