Girl Scout Buttons

During the earliest days of Girl Scouting, when a girl passed her tenderfoot test not only did she get her Tenderfoot (membership) pin, she got official Girl Scout buttons for her uniform. Most early uniforms were homemade and the official Girl Scout buttons made it "official." If a girl quit Girl Scouting (gasp!) she was expected to return the buttons to the leader of the troop!
