This is exactly what I had in mind! or you can go to a jeweler and order one in silver.

No disrespect intended.

My car is a 1984 and all the AMG stuff was added by AMG in 1984. My badge looks like the one you're selling, if that helps nail down dates any.

Actually POS yours looks like the one I posted. See the black indented line that goes just below the AMG letters. Note that the line goes all the way across without any cuts. Now look at the pic at the top. That "line" under the AMG ONLY is under the LETTERS and not between the letters.

And MTUPower, I found an older version in a book but the pic sucked and I could not get a scan. I think your version is from the 70s.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I am sure they are just two different runs, I was just trying to determine if there was a date differential.
Ah yes I see what you are saying now. Truly I dont know why the difference.
To those that seem to be mad at the buy it now price- then dont buy it. Yes you can have one made. Go do it then. What do I care? The last one I sold went to a guy in AUZ that has a very special 6.9. He was looking for a long time and I sold it to him for cheaper than the highest offer because he had a car that deserved it. On ebay I dont get to select the highest bidder- if it's some kook with a C230 "kompressor" and he wants to put it on his car for bling bling then yes I'm gonna charge him $250. I'll say it again- IF YOU HAVE A CAR THAT DESERVES THIS- SHOW IT AND I'LL SELL IT FOR LESS IF I AGREE. If not ; I dont care what you think about my buy it now price.

If it's from the 70's then maybe my buy it now is too low..lol.

Here's a item the currant top bidder won earlier
h ttp://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200064169178
another badge with the full indent. I dont really think he has two true period AMG cars- so I'd be less inclined to sell to him- but that's me. I'd like to see the badge go to a car and a person that deserves it- not a wheeler dealer. Wheeler dealer price? $250. Guy who derserves it? alot less.
