    If you're searching for the original 3D plastic versions, I'm afraid your looking for the perverbial needle in a very large haystack. Viking hasn't made them in years. I myself have been hunting for a port side replacement as mine was taken by some very nasty water.

    I'm not sure what material they were made of plastic, stainless, chrome or plated pot metal. Viking Corp doesn't know where to chase a set down. If I had or could borrow at least 1 I could get a Millennial to copy and make me a set w/ a 3-D printer. Might just be a career opportunity for someone?

    It's been mentioned before that someone with a 3D printer could replicate them, unfortunately no one has stepped up to attempt it.

    Since I can't seem to find one to buy just 1 to make a mold or copy.

    Yes that was my thought as well.
    Only need one. You can mirror the other side

    Would you be willing to unscrew it, send it to me so I can have a couple of sets, both sides made on 3-D Printer and send them back to you?

    That's something we can talk about.
    We can take this offline.
    I'll send you a PM

    I’ve never seen a multi colored insignia before. Only black and silver chrome. I just need one to scan and have a digital copy to 3-D print or have made on a waterjet in stainless steel

    Top right of the screen. A button that says "inbox".
    YF has it's own private message system.

    Did you ever get 3D printed emblems made?

    I had a guy that was supposed to do them last winter, but like most things lately, it failed to happen.
