You can try Pamela David in the UK. http://badgecraft.co.uk/index.htm
No personal experience but highly recommended. On her web site she goes
through the process of restoring a badge. Perhaps, if you do not want her to
do the work, you can glean some pointers from her process.

Subject: [Healeys] Fwd: how to restore 100/6 and AH Badges?
I am almost finished my 3 year restoration of my 1957 100/6 BN4 and have a
few small bits to restore. One is the 100/6 front grill badge and the AH
wing badge. I purchased a new 100/6 badge and can't believe how soft and
bendable the metal is compared to my original. I'd like to restore the
original. I can polish the metal nicely but was wondering how to best
create the red lettering so that it holds up to the elements long term.
Any thoughts? Any comments on color too? I was looking in to epoxy paint
but it seems it fails under UV exposure. Would urethane or acrylic paint
