A nice freshly painted white backplate, then the clear colored decal over it.

I think you're taking the long way around to a regular porcelain Z dial plate.  They're out there, and they'll look better (and last longer) than any kind of jury rigged replacement.  If you're intent on imitating the yellowing of the celluloid, you could try shooting a regular plate with toner. 

The configuration of the letters and numbers on this one is no different from regular plates.  it's a standard configuration, but on plastic.

Seems that we are all out there on e-bay driving up the prices as we bid against one another eh?

I've pretty much stopped buying phones on Ebay.  I have enough to keep me occupied for quite some time, and the family is beginning to wonder about this obsession. ;)

Also I'm wondering if prices aren't a little up because of Xmas shopping, but I imagine those are for the pre-refurbished working phones.  Just a guess.
