Windsor Decal Help Requested

I am restoring a Windsor Profesional. Above the "Columbus" sticker is a remaining scrap of an old decal that looks like it must have said "product of Mexico" or something to that effect. None of the usual decal sources include that sticker as part of their decal sets. Nor can I find a picture of it on Classic Rendezvous, VeloBase or Google images. So I realize this is a long shot but... Does anyone have a Windsor with the sticker still intact? Could you take a photo of it from straight on so I can attempt to duplicate it?
Thanks,
Brent

Brent,

It probably said "Hecho en Mexico" and is/was tri-color foil? Green, white and red, If I remember correctly. Sold my Pro eons ago but I seem to remember seeing a pic of that sticker somewhere.

Thank you Rootboy, T-Mar,

It looks like maybe Windsor mixed things up a little bit over the years. In the tiny remains of my sticker I think I can pick out the letter "U" followed by what could be "CT".



The bit of black below the other lettering may indicate a second row of lettering? Maybe a bilingual sticker?

And my sticker is at the very top of the seat tube, less than an inch below the seat lug, above the Columbus sticker.

If I can't find one that resembles mine I'll try to make a reproduction of the one shown by T-Mar.

Thanks again,
Brent

Yes, it's possible that they had different stickers over the years. I'm wondering if. as you say, at one time it was "Product of Mexico" or "Producto de Mexico". Both would have the "UCT" you describe.

Looks like Velocals sells the Made in Mexico sticker.
