Serial Number Plate engraving/stamping

VTS sells nice reproduction Airstream Land Yacht serial number plates.
My original is legible and legal but beyond restoration.

Does anyone know where I can get numbers stamped/engraved on new plate originals were?

Thanks

Most any machine shop will have letter and number stamp sets. They come in several sizes.

You might also try a trophy shop.

You can also pick up number & letter stamps reasonably cheaply; the trick with doing them is that it is hard to get an even spacing w/o jigs.

We got a set of numbers/stamps from Harbor Freight. We practiced on a scrap of aluminum, then stamped the real thing.
