|Description: This is our first CSP.
While the design is simple, it was popular for many years. The white area
within the representation of Arkansas indicated the counties served by Eastern
Arkanas Area Council. This patch was reordered several times so there are
likely to be variants we have not identified. Samples with the thickness of the
lettering having changed have been seen for example.
As late as the
2001 National Jamboree, this patch was being produced and sold through scout
shops by the national supply division. As a result, it is very difficult to
determine when one of these was issued. Apparently, the supply folks were
unaware of the design change since the council probably did not order the new
designs from them.
