Nameplates

I am missing the "Argosy" nameplates on the front and rear. Were they alum, decal,paint? Still have Minuet plates and 6 metre decals. Any place to buy this type stuff?

Those Argosy nameplates are either pot metal or cast aluminum -- I haven't been able to determine precisely which material. They are quite difficult to replace as salvage is about the only option. My speculation is that they were often removed to simplify repainting the galvanized domes and then never reattached. I found the second one that I needed for my Minuet via E-Bay -- I think that I paid around $35.00 three years ago.
