Merit Badge History - Type I Merit Badges
 
Type I Merit Badge BackType I Merit Badges are also known as computer designed or computer generated merit badges evidenced by their precise stitching and near perfect looking borders.  They came in two distinct different sizes and are classified as 42mm (large variety) and/or 38mm (small variety).

Only 30 titles were done with some being done in both variations, while others only found in one or the other. Different sources identify some titles existing in both variations, however a few of them are unconfirmed and will not be listed otherwise until confirmed and verified.

The Type I merit badge can further be identified by the inner brown border found on the back side (shown at right).
