I couldn't find one called "It's Only a Pin" but I did find this one.....
<<< What is it worth?
The Eagle Badge... The highest rank that a Scout can earn...What is it
worth?...Well, in dollars and cents it is worth about $6.50...Probably a
dollar and a half in silver, twenty cents worth of ribbon, and the rest in
manufacturing and handling costs... But, what is it really worth to you?
Think back to the time when you first became a Scout. Remember the Scout
skills that you learned for each rank. And rededication to the Scout Oath
and Law each time you advanced. Think of the service that you have given to
your troop and other people. Is your Eagle badge worth six fifty? Of course
not. Your Eagle badge is priceless. It represents everything that you have
learned, everything that you have done, to be prepared, to help others and to
help yourself. So now, you stand at the peak of the mountain. An Eagle
Scout...now look ahead... look sharp. Way out there in the mist is another
mountain...and there below is the trail to your future. It may be a long
trail, or a short one, but it leads to that mountain far away. As you walk
down the trail, and the years roll by, and you finally reach the end, we all
hope that you can look back on the trail of life and be able to say, "I have
done my best.">>>
I will ask two of the "Top Brass" here and try to get you an answer. It would
be nice to add it to my files anyway.
After typing this for you, I thought I might go ahead and post it the the
