A friend of mine found this at a site in the Kitchener/Waterloo area here in Ontario. Looking for a date range and any background history on the regiment if possible. :thumbsup:

Quote from the gentleman who made this find:
“I almost threw this little beauty away; I didn’t know what it was until I looked at it after a few days.
I’m thinking it’s a US Scouts badge and was probably lost by a visitor to Canada, always check your suspected junk.”


Pictured here with a couple of Canadian Dimes for scale.

Thanks,
Dave

I think that is a parent's pin given by the Scouts when their son reached the rank of Tenderfoot. Circa 1960's
Thank you very much for your post and information creskol. :wave:
Hope you're doing well these days.
