Hello, Fellow Scouters!  I just joined this forum. I first registered as an adult scout leader in 1986 in St. Cloud, Minnesota; then was an ASM in Germany from 1990-1991; Scoutmaster of an inner city troop from 1992-1993; and then was inactive until I had my own sons.  I became a Tiger den leader 5 years ago and joined the International Committee for the Northern Star Council (Minneapolis-St. Paul) 3 years ago.  I'm a merit badge counselor for a number of merit badges, and have led contingents to several international scout jamborees.  Glad to be in good company with all of you :-)


I'm putting together a second uniform for myself now, and need to obtain one of the old orange & black Tiger den leader knot patches, which have been discontinued since I was awarded mine.  The Scout Shops don't sell them anymore; nor does ScoutStuff.com.  I've checked Amazon and eBay and the only ones I can find are privately made, but I'd like to by an authentic one.  Can anyone help a fellow scouter out?  Thank you!

I was in the same situation: needing TCDL knots.  What I was told to do is buy the DL knot and add the Tiger device to it. That is what recipients of the TCDL were told to do when the knot was abolished, and TDLs do now.


Ebay is another option, but be prepared to pay for it. One is for sale at $40 or thereabouts, and another has a current bid of $11.


Another option can be thrift stores. Back in the day, I was able to find all kinds of patches I needed, and traded, on used uniforms. Unfortunately that is not an option for me locally as our SCOUTREACH director has a standing order with all the local thrift stores.


Good luck

Instead of searching eBay for just the patch try searching for uniform shirts that have patches on them.  I've bought all but mine and my son's first uniforms from eBay and haven't paid more than $15 for any of them.  All but one of the shirts I bought already had patches sewn on, although none of them were knots but I have seen lots of uniforms with knots on them.
