Yes, some enterprising scout or scouter thought up the idea, but
discovered it could be made for less money if it was made in China, thus
either keeping the cost of the gift low or increasing his profit more.
I know a scouter who makes patches, tons of them; CSP, Camporee, OA, and
"civilian" patches for whatever occasion or need. If you need fifty, he
does them right here. If you need 500 or 5,000, he does them at his
plant in China, where he can get them made for less, thus increasing his
profit. Just think what our uniforms would cost, if they were made in
China, $18 for a shirt and $20 for the pants, instead for $28 and $36.
