Thanks Max Silber – Great National and World Jamboree Belt Buckles

There have been a ton of Max Silber belt buckles on eBay recently and that got me to thinking that I didn't really know the story behind this great Scouter and craftsman.

Is This Patch Legit?

When I saw this on eBay I thought this had to be a spoof. Its just basically two of the old OA logos blended together on a flap shaped jacket patch.
