The supplier is a company with the name Bare Metal Foil Co. "Looks like metal because it is metal"

The reason I originally bought it was to try on the badges of a couple of beat-up HP12C and HP15C calculators. I didn't actually use it for that when Peter Monta started producing metal badges to replace missing or damaged ones.


I bought a chrome foil some time ago, but never find the time and nerve to use it on my beaten units.
