Custom Leica Wax Seal Stamper

My Leica M3 just got a CLA. The original "L" seal was removed and I would like to re-seal it with my own letter - for no other reason than I think it's cool to do

Any ideas on how to make or buy such a tiny wax stamper?

For what it's worth, my "original" L seal was probably not authentic.

You must be almost as bored as I am, waiting for better weather.

I have found it helpful to shift my attention to something else until the urgency goes into remission!

I've got a pantograph engraver - I could custom make one for you. Send me a PM if you're interested...

I have a Fimo mold of the "L" seal. You can borrow it if you want.

It is possible to buy metal alphabet (and number) stamps in various sizes. Here is one here though the smallest size is 2mm which I think is still somewhat too large. But if you search further something may turn up. You may find something sold for jewellers for example though they tend to hand engrave with graving chisels.

EDIT: 1.5mm from another advert........

Thanks for the tips. I didn't know about those metal alphabet punches.

Dudes, you sounds like Pasific Mall.
I'd like my Leica seal stamp to read KoFe.
In the Leica font of course.
