Which Corvette vendor has the best nose flag emblem for a '72?  Best quality and fit???  Can anyone help me?  I've heard some of the reproductions aren't up to OEM standards in colors and fit.

I thought I had a new in the box emblem but apparently I have a 73-74 nose emblem.  So, I need to get the correct one.

I was going to say e-bay.  I've seen 72 emblems there in Perfect condition.  Likewise, I would suggest e-bay to unload your 73/74 emblem.  They can fetch good $.
 
Unless ya want to just give it to me or Joel...  LOL
