Replacement VIN tag question

So I got my Rover delivered to me with a VIN tag missing the left half, luckily I have the full VIN on my frame that was used to verify my VIN and get me registered in Colorado.
The tag in question is clearly the correct one since the numbers match on the right side to the frame but is not complete.
Here is my question, can I order a replacement VIN tag to place on the truck? The frame is is pretty good shape but I can see a replacement in the future and then I will be partially VINless.

This question comes up every couple of months. Yes.

That blows. Was the mangled VIN tag disclosed prior to purchase?

Great backstory to CYA on the no-VIN 110 up in Oregon. I'm impressed really.

No it was not
Weird thing was I always asked other sellers to provide a picture as I was looking before this purchase and didn't in this case.

Thanks for the link to the other thread I did a quick search and didn't find that thread.

So I read the other thread and that sucks for him, what a cluster.

The reply was yes but where do I go to get one made?

I understand I have to have state inspect the truck and witness the swap. In Colorado we have a formal form for VIN verification even on new cars just brought into the state as I had to do the same for my 2015 LR4 since we moved from Washington state.

Can I get LR to make one for me or do other sources make one I can use? I can handle the inspection part I just now want to make sure I can get one made that would be legal.

Anyone use these guys for VIN plates? VIN-PLATESĀ* :: Replacement vehicle identification number plates for land rovers.
They also sell a punch kit VIN-PLATESĀ* :: Number Punch Kit for VIN chassis plates.
I'm going to order something soon and wanted to make sure I was getting good kit.

I ordered one from a place in the UK. Issue is that it doesn't have the LR logo stamped in it.

I haven't had luck with my local LR dealer. They say it's on order (almost a year now).
