It also looks like the 3 Scott Drake Emblems have the Pins in slightly different locations, looking at just the SD Emblems.
I suspect they didn't take into account that the emblems might have to go into original holes.  Frustration  Chalk it up to typical repro inconsistency.

Okay, I'll jump into this post. I have an original spare that I'm willing to part with. Given the prices of 65/66 original parts in today's market. As ridiculous as this may seem how's $300.00 with free shipping! Seem ridiculous? Don't buy it then.
Seriously though, this one has tarnished/oxidized a bit. See pics.

Cheers

Hello,

When 406 was restored, they put on a Scott Drake repop [bottom one].  I had purchased a rear badge from Tony Branda in the early 80's [top one] and kept it in a drawer hoping to match it with a car in later years.  I found the Branda rear badge and then noticed the size differences.  I documented the differences a few years ago and never thought about it...hence the photo.  I have since removed the Scott Drake one and installed the one from Branda.

Just for info.

Cheers,

Steve

I believe the one you got from Branda is a legit later version one. Branda even today still has a few various items in inventory that were part of large buy outs of original stock back in the day . Some he ran through and other more obscure things not so fast. For instance he still was selling the plastic emblem surround for 67 Shelby fender emblems up until a year ago .Maybe he still has some. He had a lot of 69 Shelby convert rear seat belt retractor related items up until recently also.
