I heard that when the rule about "patch trading" (youth to youth, and adult to adult only) was put out, it was initiated due to practices at a NJ?
Anyway, regarding "important papers" (like from the Scout skit)...we have some old ones at one of my Fire Museums. The building once served as a "Civil Defense" site (remember that term from days gone by). There are official water containers and various personal needs items, including "important papers" from 1952. Another example of your printing showing the "property of" is in my Industry. We have a problem with equipment like backboards (for trauma Patients) ending up at some other agency! So, some Departments have this on the underside of the Board, in case you see it as the Board is carried by: "Stolen from agency "so and so", haha.
