The first Boy Scout pictured on a stamp appeared in 1925 when Hungary printed a set of eight sport stamps showing athletes and a Scout bugler with a background of tents. The cost was double face value plus 10%, and represented income for these activities as well as Scouting. A four line inscription on the reverse side certifies this cost.
The 1933 World Jamboree held in Gödöllő, Hungary was
the first World Jamboree to be commemorated on postage stamps.
Every host nation has issued one or more stamps or a postal card
honoring this event since Gödöllö.
