Type D Merit Badges were produced from 1942 to 1946. The emroidered green ring comes with many color variations but do not necessarily make a distinct variation from a collector's view.  Currently there are only 85 of the 111 merit badges available during the mid 1940's that are known to exist in the Type D style.
