You could try Framptons and ask if they will supply the characters for their Raised Riveted plates separately.

Framptons do them separately, as do Jepsons (Sheffield) https://www.jepsonandco.com/
Got mine from the latter.
When you're ordering, don't forget the new serrated washers to hold them to the grille.
