so as usual, I think Johnny hit it spot on.  Notice in the pic posted by Bireleys1 that the plexiglass cover over the 7up logo has no chrome ring around it and no associated holes in the dispenser to attach a ring with.  I think the chrome ring version on my dispensers is exactly the same as the Cornelius 50 badges and may have been a retrofit solution to update the display.  The back of both may dispensers have not chrome ring and the front of both of them do.  Unfortunately, the green stripe version I have is heavily damaged and shows a lot of the adhesive.  It doesn't look good.  Going to try to redo it.  The other one shows the 1943 logo and is in pretty good shape.  Going to keep it original and redo the front side chrome ring version to match.  I am thinking they provided a template to drill holes in the front to add the chrome ring.  The decal in it appears to be some sort of a foil sticker with aluminum backing.  It has adhesive in the front and back side and it a pain in the rear to try to remove.  Looks like it was applied to the plexiglass cover then adhered to the Tombstone as well. If by chance anyone has a 7up decal with the green stripes or a Cornelius 50 cooler chrome ring with an older 7up logo in it, I would be interested.

Also noticed that the other pic posted showed a version with green dispensers.  Mine has black ones.  Would be interested on green versions of anyone has some.

You could maybe make the medallion... get the artwork then pore liquid resin over them. would have to make some type of edging to shape it. those green taps can be $$$...

A quick search on google showed this pic.  The cooler is worth zero, but if anyone might have scavenged this logo off of one, it would match the back of one of my dispensers

Trying to make a replacement logo to put into the oval on the dispenser.  This turned out decent but i need a higher resolution copy of the red and black part of the logo.  When I blow it up the black outline on the letters gets a bit fuzzy.  Anyone have a higher quality version of this logo?

Eric,

Not yet.  Cleaning up the old ones to apply a new decal has proven a challenge.  I have set it off to the side for a bit as we have had a couple Covid related issues in the family.  Still planning to get around to this once we get a bit of normal life back in place.
