Replying to various comments all at once....

I've had another careful look at the black plastic panel. There may be
a little adhesive residue
on it but not much, and if it is, it looks like the sort of glue on
double-sided tape. So perhaps
a non-DEC banner was put there by a previous owner.

The recess measures 18+1/2" by 3+5/16". Just so we all agree on what
is needed. That
was measured with a steel tape measure, nothing more accurate.

I would too, unless the price is _ridiculous_. Any idea what the price would be?
