In Cub Scout AND Boy Scout Basic Training, you are supposed to be trained on how
to catch that kind of thing yourself. However, as is also not unusual, most
trainers do not think it important to train as they are supposed to do---
Every document from national "biggest printing press in the sky" has a code that
tells you the following:
Location: Inside front cover usually (look on next page until you find it)
1991 Printing (original printing)
Copyright 1986 (original copyright - ALL our stuff is copyrighted, even
Boy Scouts of America
No. 3064A Printed in U.S.A. (sometimes you will find a further note stating
that this particular publication was reprinted in say 1993 in this spot).
Now -- let's follow this:
1. Look in inside cover of ALL publications. Find something that resembles the
Exception: publications directly from national (not supply) have numbers
like:10-1202 1991 printing.
2. Last line shows part number -- No. 3064A which is what you use to reorder
the item. There may be an addtional printing listed as noted above.
Now - when you go to the trading post, scout shop, to purchase publications, it
the ACTUAL printing is more than 1 year old, do NOT buy it, order a current
edition - they CAN look that up quickly in their order listing.
MOST publications are done annually. However, if you watch your Scouting
Magazine carefully, News Brief column, you will find any updates that do occur
Hope this helps.
