Hello.  I picked up this item at a tag sale today.  Have no idea what it is.  The circle is 1-1/4 " in diameter and is almost lime green.  Looks like an old wood plane on it, so maybe some kind of carpenter rating.

 

Any help appreciated to what service (if military) and vintage.

Well that's a bummer!  Didn't think of boy scouts- got target fixation, looking for mil stuff.  He did have a couple boys, so maybe one of theirs.  Oh well, only out a quarter. Thanks for the help.

 

Have a Good Memorial Day Weekend and Bless all the Vets out there!

Merit badge is correct.  Used from 1911 to 1952, so probably the vets from late 30's to pre "43 when he went in.

Given the square cut and color, this one dates from before 1950.  I believe it is Woodworking MB.

Thanks Gil and GunBunny

 

Don't mean to put down the Boy Scouts or the badge, just thought I might have found an unusual military patch.  I'll put the MB in a box for now. I think I have some other pre-war BS items that came with another grouping I bought years ago.  Just have to find where I "filed" them.
