Best Source - BEST Quailty Decals

It's time to order :D

What is your prefferred supplier for historical accuracy, quality of the graphic, longevity, etc. Cost is a factor, but quality and accuracy out way cost.

I can't seem to establish if the '48 would have had the Patent Sticker on the right fender or anywhere for that matter.

Ken,

IMHO the only place to get them is from Maple Hunter, contact John Hunter 812-894-9759. I think the patent decals were only used on export tractors...

If you are looking for accurate reproductions, C&G is your best choice. They are the only ones made to match the original drawings.

Ken:

Agree wholeheartedly with Jim. All my decals I ordered from Ken at Carter and Grunewald.

TM Tractor Parts has the patent decals. The patent decal probably won't be in the Maple-Hunter set. They would have been used on US machines, not just exports. TM has complete decal sets as well.

I would stick to Maple-Hunter, TM Tractor, or C&G, whoever I bought from. Also it is not "correct," but I would spend more and go with the vinyl decals over the mylar.
