Suppliers of Rosettes
French companies I found on the web that have Rosettes for sale: as of 01/2012
Some sell Retail from their website a search on Rosettes a search on Rosettes

Ebay has been a good source for me. The problem is when looking for certain ones, Ebay does not allow some to be sold, Purple Heart, DSC, Silver Star, etc.
I have been asked about certain ones, such as, the DFC, LoM, MSM, Army Ach., the recent past and Current Campaigns,
which are not offered anywhere to be had. My thinking is that for some awards, a limited supply was made due to the number of those awarded these in the past [LoM, DFC,MSM, etc.], unlike today where some awards seems to be more widely available in some cases.
An example is Ribbons, where every Ribbom from the Civil War up is still out there to be had,
though there is no longer anyone alive who was awarded it nor the number of family members keeping that memory alive.

The more common Rosettes where made for a mass market [ex: ribbons], either as one awarded it or as a collector wanting one
and thus more were left when the style of wearing Rosettes changed.
See above -The obvious problem is the cost- and below about cost today why there is a limited amount still around.
Because of the Enamel Lapel pins being standard issue, there is not enough demand for a company to make them and get the profit they would need from them.

Getting Rosettes made
There is an American company and a French one who I have corresponded with.   06/2011

I found a French maker that would make them up for $7-8 each in quantity's of 35 [ I think it was ] depending on the Dollar/Euro exchange
This part is in French and I used MS internet explorer to view it.
The site has an English tab also.

01/2014-There is an American company, Dexter, but they wanted 100 done at a time, for around the same price.
Since this was first posted, I have been in contact with Dexter and they have been alot more user friendly
I had a link for them on this web site once and emailed if it would OK to have the link, the response was not very friendly, being huffy puffy about the price I had shown, which I got off the net from other sources, so I took it down.
It would have been very easy to change the wording to handle this, but the responding person wasn't wise enough to get this part of public relations.
I wish I would have kept it, but did not, as this is an on going project among several that I work on, so I deleted it and moved on to the next item, that was a blimp in time and only later did I think that it could be an issue, and posting it would let all see what I saw.
