    The only one left now is the 'Made In USA', which has 82mm screw spacing, but that would be a bit naughty on an X2 ;).

    Yes it would hadn’t noticed that. Just don’t like the silly badge on then x2. There is one in evil bay for a blackface with no made in USA part.

    I agree, it's stupid putting the Brownface-style logo on a Blackface-style amp, it just looks wrong.

    There's this one on Ebay - a modern plastic one.

    If the screw holes don't match perfectly it would be easy to make new ones - the logo will cover the old ones.

    Pardon my ignorance, and I appreciate it's probably not 'era specific', but do you think the remaining badge would fit on my newly acquired, rehoused Princeton reverb '68?  Was originally a silver face, so...

    It would certainly fit, yes. Slightly naughty to put a Made In USA badge on a Mexican-made amp though :).

    There's another one on Ebay...
