Default Series 1 Rear body tag / plate

Looking for some help in recreating the rear body tag that is fastened behind the license plate on a 1967 XKE. The original was removed for paint and went missing. This doesn't appear to be an item that can be purchased and then stamped. I have the heritage certificate and the matching numbers. Thanks in advance.

Cheers.

Cheers.

This is a problem I have been researching my self. I have decided to make a one-off embossing die for my number as it is stamped into a thin sheet of aluminum. I am doing this by casting a positive and negative of the number so I can press it in the metal strip. There are actual embossing machines but the font is wrong. will let you know haw this works. I might be able to make it cost effective to offer as a service

backside of tag showing depression


shows raised letters/numbers


head on.

Took a while but have finally been able to reproduce the body tags for the e-type. These are the tags on the inside of the FHC or on the license plate filler. These are embossed so not a simple stamping but raised letters.

This is the tag for my 68 OTS that I reproduced. I think a lot of these fell off as they are aluminum and oxidized where they were pop riveted on.
