    There was a guy on ebay who sold them from Kazakhstan. They are 3D printed and don't have the pins to mount them but you can hot glue them on. They measure out to be slightly smaller then the originals. I needed an 11 inch and it was closer to 10.

    There's a guy on craigslist LA from tome to time offering the 9" and 11" original replacement badges, but in white only.

    You can make a small aluminum foil dip tray and fill it with Rustoleum Gloss Black, $3.99 for a 4oz can and give a badge complete immersion upside-down a few times. Rest it to dry upright on the pins. Pour the tray out ea time back to the can once a uniform coating has developed.

    Then you hit it again after a few days with flat black spray by "dusting" it from 14" inches above until the shine gets knocked down.

    Recoatinga gloss coat too heavy with a flat, reintroduces solvents it gave off at too dissimilar of a rate which can cause re-expansion in a nasty way such as wrinkling or lifting. And then the piece is ruined.

    Straight flat in one coat is lazy: due to the nature of PVA plastics, the flat easily scratches or flakes off because it has less plasticizers binding to the surface.

    I've cleaned blacked badges up easy that were previously just flat-sheened: using alcohol or lacquer thinner swabs. Not so easy with gloss sheen black sprayed badges!

    The base sheen matters alot. Solid PVA molded original Marshall badges in black?

    NEVER seen black replacement originals available, NEVER pulled one off an RR head or cab to see if in fact, black originals were ever molded that way down to the pins, and I doubt the factory EVER wants black molded original acetate badges out there on the wholesale parts market.

    Just paint it paint it / paint it black...

    Spray first with:

    Then spray lightly with a semi-gloss:
