Lots of possibilities. One is as the beginning to a Scoutmaster's
minute - particularly if you have Eagle's in your troop that are not too
helpful (but you have to be subtle). Starts out something like..."This
is an Eagle Scout Award. It was found, lying unused, for sale in a
pawnshop. Sometimes Scouts and adults can find themselves in that
position too - their Scouting ideals unused, themselves for sale...."
Go on from there.
Another possibility is as part of a troop display - particularly if you
have an Eagle roster.
My Eagle is from the clasp era too. I hope it never finds its way toa
pawnshop. Sorta seems to me that if an Eagle medal can't be used, it
should be given a nice retirement....
