L Merit Badges are the latest generation of merit badges and
is identified by the "SINCE 1910" inclusion within the plastic
backing (shown to the right).
Type L Merit Badges were introduced in 2015 and have been found
to have two different manufacturing variations. Only a
handful have been identified to exist in both variations, and
while one variation is far more prevelant than the other, the
two types can be identified easily side by side. The
lesser common version has a darker olive border than the other,
however a few merit badges have only been found in this
variation alone, the majority only coming in the more common
variation. Variations are not shown in this list at this time,
only the fact that a Type L merit badge exists.
Currently there are only two merit badges that are UNCONFIRMED
whether there is a Type L merit badge for the titles; Bugling and Welding. These unconfirmed /
missing titles may be produced in the future, however as of the
last update of this page, they have not and have not been
confirmed to exist.
