MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Chassis plates

I need a new chassis plate for a 1971 Sprite but what I have seen so far don't look particularly good.

The nearest I have seen is the one in the attached image but this is not completely correct. The spacing between "Longbridge" "Birmingham" and "England" is too wide and there should be a comma after "Longbridge" and after "Birmingham". Or am I being too picky?

This is Chinese for Longbridge, Birmingham, England, apparently!

Rob. It's not important unless the new owner notices it's a ringer. LOL.

Re-use the old one? I bought the car from a local dismantler who is not known for his customer skills and claims not have it. However, I have talked to the guy he bought it from who confirms everything was handed over to him.

So I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place as far as the original is concerned.
