I'm trying to scan a decal but it's got a reflective (mirror) surface, anyone have and recommendations on how to scan this so it will show the letters that are in the mirrored portion?

top says Mastercraft
bottom says Ski Boats

What year(s) does this go to?

You might try scanning it through a non glare translucent plastic or glass. I think that decal goes on either side (near the transom) of the stars and stripes Mastercrafts from the mid 70's through '83 or '84.

Looks like the powerslot decal, but for the fact that it doesn't say power slot. You might try laying it flat on a well lit surface and taking a digital picture of it (flash off) if nothing else works.

When you do the digital pic.. be sure to use the "macro" feature on your camera for taking pics of things closer than 3'

I had a heck of a time taking a pic of my daughter's first season pass (she was 6 months old!)... then I finally used that feature on my camera I never used before!

The oval Decal was used on early 80's boats. It replaced the older USA flag type decal on the late 70's boats.
What reason are you trying to scan it?
