1957 boy scout manualThe theme of God and Country introduced in 1950 was used through the 1950’s. There are all types of printed material and badges with this theme, although most don’t have anything to do with the Jamboree.












As in previous years there was a color souvenir book (below). It’s excellent and most collectors would want one.

Things that may confuse you
In later years many things were reproduced, often by the BSA with the 1957 Jamboree logo on them. On earlier pages I show the reproduction pocket patch, but here are a few other items.

Coins were reproduced in 1973 in both gold and silver. The design is similar to the authentic but details are different. Belt buckles and bolo ties came at the same time, the buckle and bolo are generic, the gold or silver coin is inserted into the buckle or bolo for the appropriate year.
