I was reading this topic last week and decided to hunt around for some XP replacement stickers ... I have three IBM Thinkpad notebooks ... one T41 and two T42s ... only one T42 had stickers still in place ... the XP sticker and a "Pentium M" sticker.
The T42 notebook that has all the stickers in place was like new when I bought it used ... I made the call at the right time I guess and he had this one for sale.
Anyway, I was interested in putting replacement stickers on the other two Thinkpads but never persued the idea till I read this thread.
I ordered stickers from eBay ... they look genuine but I don't know if the XP sticker will be the "metal" type. There seem to be two different "Pentiun M" stickers ... The sicker still on my good T42 has a yellow "M" and I found these stickers from Hong Kong.
The stickers seem reasonable and look real in the photos ... I will find out soon, I guess.
Just wanted to have the stickers back on, if possible ... the computers are not scratched at all, whoever removed the old stickers was careful when they did it ... I can see a slightly darker area where the XP sticker had been. The stickers look exactly like the stickers still on my one T42 Thinkpad.
I only post the eBay ads for the pictures. I did buy the XP stickers from this dealer ... he was the only one I could find selling the exact XP sticker that I needed. I bought two after making an offer.

I bought five Pentium M stickers from a dealer in Hong Kong ... buying just one or two almost as expensive as buying five ... I have a few spares in case I mess up a couple when applying them.
Did not buy from this seller ... same pictures with the yellow looking "M" ... maybe it could be the same seller that also had an ad for five stickers, not sure ... didn't check my eBay order.
I didn't look far enough down the page ... this is the seller I bought the five Pentium M stickers from with Free Shipping:
