    I have a 5BDXCC plaque I received in Feb 2018 which is similar in style to the original plaque, but the painted tile within the wooden plaque is of poor quality, low color contrast; also there is no red stripe around the perimeter and the ARRL logos are of such low contrast they almost look like totally black diamonds. I just don't like it and refuse to display it on the wall of my shack.

    I am looking for an earlier generation plaque, pre-2017, with the bright, colorful and distinctive painted tile. Obviously the tile alone would be great, but I don't see that item being easily separated from the plaque.

    Presumably this might come from someone no longer into ham radio or possibly a SK's estate whose family did not wish to keep the item. I would refurb the plaque, apply the endorsement stickers (that I have never put on my plaque) and have a print shop duplicate my ID plate (Award #, Callsign and Date) to attach to the "new" one. I don't think I can get my ID plate off without damaging it, but a print shop could easily duplicate it.

    TIA and 73
