Bright Ideas: Inktober 27, Pa’s Bolo

This Official Boy Scout Eagle Bolo was my grandfather’s.
Pa would be about 116 now, which dates the bolo to the beginning of the scout’s era,
circa 1910.  It has the eagle with the two stars flanking the sides, sitting on a knot.

Bright Ideas multi-color journal, with Platinum Carbon pen with Platinum Carbon cartridges and Lamy Joy with De Atramentis Document black ink.
