solutions to finding the NLA rear deck emblem?

Wisdom and advice is solicited from the group.

I have an early '66 912 that I brought back from the dead in the late 90's. It's far from a show car but I'm proud to have put it back on the road after decades of neglect.
My intention is to restore the rear deck lid with the correct silver emblems.

No problem finding the 912 script but what about the impossible to find "one-piece" silver PORSCHE emblem?

My options appear to be:
invent a time machine and return to the parts counter at Vasek Polak in 1966 or buy the gold 911 variant and have it plated.

Anybody have a recommendation (or an available emblem in fair condition)?

Suggest that you make your inquiry on the 912 site: https://www.912bbs.org/forum/Home/

It looks like the product is available in the Netherlands! Although, I have no familiarity with the company.

Thanks for the input gentlemen.

Purchase cost + duties + overseas shipping = too rich for my blood

Perhaps one day we will be able to resume swap meets and in-person car shows! I'm hopeful that will be my ticket!

Maybe you could replate one of these?

Thanks for the input from both sides of the pond.

I will continue to look for the silver badge with a nod to factory correctness.
An original, NOS part is likely out of my price range and maybe too nice for my rough-around-the-edges resto.

Does anyone else grapple with this conundrum?
I'm not shooting for a 100 point restoration but want to honor the factory's design brilliance while staying within my own budget constraints?
Perhaps I've answered my own question
