Replica Bands – Aluminum Only

Have you ever been in the dilemma where you and your buddies are out hunting and someone shoots a banded bird, but you don’t know who? Who gets to keep the band? Now you and all your friends can have it with our Replica Bands. National Band & Tag is the only company authorized to make genuine federal replica bands by the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory.

Replica Bird Bands

How to Order:
  1. You report the band to the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory.
  2. They send you a Certificate of Appreciation.
  3. You email a copy of your Certificate to us along with your order. ([email protected])
  4. We confirm it with the USGS. (Please Note: This process is currently taking 4-6 months due to COVID-19.)
  5. After we have verified your Certificate with the USGS, a customer service representative will contact you to place your order and collect payment. You then get a band that looks exactly like the one that was on your bird.

Replica Bands are also great for when you want to put the original band on your mount and put the replica on your lanyard. Or if the original band is lost or stolen but you have kept the certificate, it can then be replaced. Please note that reward bands and Jack Miner bands cannot be duplicated. Also, hard metal steel bands can only be duplicated onto aluminum bands. We do not replicate plastic bands or neck bands.

$50 for the first band, and $25 for each additional one, as long as it is the same size and has the same stamping with different prefix and number. If they are all different sizes/stamping then it’s $50 each. Plus shipping.
