Need info on Hiking medallion
Posted 24 August 2014 - 01:50 AM
On Scoutstuff.org there is a hiking medallion that is called, "I Made It" and in its circumference it says U.S. Geological Survey - Bench Mark with an empty center as if to have it engraved.
I glanced at the survey MB book but didn't see any mention of it. Can anyone tell us its meaning and where we can read up on it?

If you reached a summit with a USGS marker, then you earned it. Note there is space to engrave information as you choose and can fit - summit, elevation, or date, or With My Dad,...
This ebay seller has that medallion and specific summit medallions.

In-case the link doesn't work, go through Scoutstuff.com's drop-down menu as
Gifts & Gift Cards>Outdoor>Medallions & Shields
There are more medallions, mostly wood badge, at
And then Philmont Specific medallions here
BTW, My son got a blue ribbon for his Hiking stick, AND Best of Class for it in the Boy Scout division. He is very proud of his ribbons and is already planning out a new design for another staff for next years county fair. Instead of fancy medallions he is researching "Survival Staves" on YouTube.
