    I know what it is when it was made and why it was made yadda yadda yadda.....wondering if anyone out there possibly knew about how many of these were made though.

    "There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure."

    5th item down on this site, it says it's rare but doesn't say how rare.

    Never seen that type before, the more common ones have a wolves face inside a diamond which behind that looks like entangled ropes. I dug a common one a couple weeks ago but they aren't worth much, this one could probably sell for quite a bit more. Nice find

    1950 Commemorative neckerchief slide for the Cub Scouts. One was also made for the Boy Scouts as well.


    More from Wikipedia below.

    "The Boy Scouts of America celebrated their fortieth anniversary in 1950 with the theme of Strengthen the Arm of Liberty.[1] The campaign was inaugurated in February with a dramatic ceremony held at the base of the Statue of Liberty.

    Between 1949 and 1952, approximately two hundred 100-inch (2.5 m) replicas of the statue, made of stamped copper, were purchased by Boy Scout troops and donated in 39 states in the U.S. and several of its possessions and territories.

    A Strengthen the Arm of Liberty brass pin was also available for uniform and civilian wear. The pin is in the shape of the Statue of Liberty superimposed on a fleur de lis. The Robbins Company, which made BSA's Eagle medals for many years, made these pins and the winged "R" hallmark is prominently displayed on the reverse. In addition, a commemorative neckerchief slide was made for Boy Scouts and for the Cub Scouts."
