Boy Scouts would often carry 'good turn coins' as a reminder to do good deeds daily. The coins would be placed in one pocket and transfered to the other once a good deed had been performed.
Photograph caption dated June 17, 1964 reads, "North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and Mrs. Russell A. Quisenberry help dedicate Jubilee Scout Ranch commissary. Also shown are, second from left [sic], Paul Palmer, Valley Boy Scout Council president, and Dave Dobbs, the Antelope Valley scout ranch's resident ranger."
