This attractive "1948 Boy Scout Handbook" is in very good condition. The spine is sound, although there is slight curving of the corners. This book was actually put to use by a Mr. Harald Yoder (name on first page,) so there is some soiling and dog-eared corners in the interior pages. But the pages are bright, and we only saw one small tear, and a few pencil marks inside. In addition the Boy Scout pin is in good condition too, although here is minor surface wear and tarnish. The pin mechanics are in good working condition, and grips tightly, although stick pin is slightly bent.
