I bought mine from Maple-Hunter decals in Indiana (thanks to Bigdog). Here is the contact info, ask for John:

You will find there are several places to buy them. I got mine for my 49 and was well pleased with the decals and the quick sevice.
Maple-Hunter Decals would be my first choice. However there are many good sources such as Binder Books or Carter & Gruenewald.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
While we are on the subject of decals can anyone explain something. check out the link below
The decal that has LH D B and the one O D B. I know one or the other is for the light switch, I think. If both ARE used were do they go. anyone have any pics of them on the tractor.
I got mine at TSC and I think they are a nice set of decals.
If you can't find it, don't lose it.
Rather than make several different decal sets for a tractor depending on options and features, most decal sets include all the decals for a particular model and any options or features it may be equipped with.
In this case, the set is for the 47-54 Cub, which was equipped with a cutout through 1950 and a regulator from 1951-1954, or something like that. The LH D B decal is for the 4-position light switch that controls the cutout, and the ODB decal is for the 3-position light switch that only controls the lights, because the regulator is automatic.
The funny thing about this set is it is "McCormick-Deering" which makes it '47-'49 only, but includes an (O D B) that is '50 and later only.
There is a fundamental problem with what is "best" because that is a subjective term. It includes at least 3 distinct aspects that may be considered separately or in combination:
1) Cheapest. You can shop around for that. Likely sources include places like TSC, many eBay or internet sellers, Iron Horse etc.
2) Pretty ones for over-restored trailer queens, accuracy not important. Vinyl cut ones from Maple-Hunter fit the bill.
3) Accurate wording and appearance. Go to Ken Updike at C&G.
Your money, your choice.
I guess I have one of those over-restored trailer queens then. My boys don't have the luxury of growing up on tractors like I did since tabacco is worthless now. My over-restored trailer queen is purely for the enjoyment of my children and when I am dead and gone they can tell their children and grand children that they helped their daddy over-restore that pretty little red trailer queen. They can also say my daddy was never perfect therefore accuaracy was the least of his worries.
anybody know what they had for decals on a 66? the only one mine had was one on the battery box.
I took a few close-up reference pictures of my 58 cub's original decals before blasting & painting. I can't comment on Maple Hunter or the others, but I recently ordered a full set from Ken at C&G. Ken is very nice and helpfull, and I believe the decals are fairly authentic and accurate in overall appearance. My only reservation is that they were either scanned or printed digitally at a lower resolution, so the type has a jagged, rough appearance. You can only see this at close range -- 8 inches or less, so it may not be a problem for some.
