There is - I finally have all of the proper dimensions to make sure the badges will be correct and am working with two vendors at this point who say they can properly reproduce the badges. I'm hoping to have something soon - thanks for your patience....

I understand Willis has contracted with two of the original venders to produce them.
May be he will be along to give a better update.

I did find someone and am working with them on tooling and whether they will produce based on small production batches.

I have stopped at the $4,500 tooling costs but still plan to move forward in the future once I swallow hard a few times. I’m still looking for better prices and a machined badge wasn’t feasible for looks or finish.

I also got one of Bob Teet’s last Lucas kits and have reproduced the parts. They look good and I have a few sets but I’m searching for a more cost effective machinist based on low quantity runs.

Thanks!

Wow. That's terrifying.

Did you try Northwest Territory Mint or one of the companies that makes military challenge coins? I've done several coins through them (and they make more than coins). They are full-service. Might be worth checking out. Cost for art and tooling would be in the low hundreds, putting production more in reach for the numbers we are talking about. They do high quality work. They'll match Pantone colors and every detail. We would probably need to ship them an original.

I'd be willing to discuss helping front costs as necessary.

When I ordered my Command coins I went back and forth with artists *several* times (and always relayed through the salesperson), but the final product was spectacular.
