What Makes a Patch “Offi cial”? It’s made by the BSA or a company that has permission from the BSA.


Why Collect Only Offi cial Patches? 1. Every offi cial patch is reviewed and authorized by the BSA. We know who made them, how many were made, and more! 2. It helps protect the BSA brand and keeps unoffi cial patches out of your collection!* 3. It’s the ethical thing to do.


How to Spot Offi cial Patches: 1. Look for the words Boy Scouts of America, BSA or a BSA Fleur-de-Lis on the front. 2. Flip it over to check out the backing. 3. Does it have one of the backings shown on the left?

Effective June 1, 2014, scan codes are required on all Council Shoulder Patches and sets, Jamboree Shoulder Patches and sets, OA Lodge Flaps and Pocket Patches collectible patches and sets. Patches of these types with existing inventory on June 1, 2014, are required to carry the scan code on any reorder or replacement set when the inventoried quantity is exhausted.
