Source for unique kilt pins
By Ted Severe, Wood Badge National Coordinator

Anyone interested in acquiring kilt pins, please let them know that I can provide them. I take a commercially available heavy wire kilt pin and solder coins to the head of the pin as decoration. I made and sent one to Chief Donald in Scotland for his 60th birthday this August. I used a 1954 British shilling with the Scottish arms on the coin's reverse. I have quite a selection of coins for this use. Cost of one of my kilt pins is $15.00. Sadly, I do not have any pictures of finished pins.

I can provide these pins to Wood Badge members, as I can cover all eight of the Wood Badge patrol animals (Beaver, Bobwhite quail, Eagle, Fox, Owl, Bear, Buffalo and Antelope). Anyone interested can contact me through the CMSNA website's contact link.
