I bought my first packwood stub tail razor the other day off the bay and its on its way. It is missing one of its original flower shaped collars, and I would like to find one that matches or atleast resembles the original ones. If anyone knows where I can find them it would be greatly appreciated!

You may make your own, but it is a lot of work modifying the standard large washer with a jeweler's piercing saw and files. There are, often, some other similar looking solid washers available on the 'bay. You will have to check with a search for Straight Razor Washer. The fancy ones come up from time to time.

Good call, The ones at Michael's and other craft stores still need modification to replicate the originals. But, that may be simpler to do so than starting fresh. Many of them are a pewter mix with a dash of plating. If done correctly and thinned to washer thickness they may look elegant...if not they look like cheap bling. Beading shops sell them also.

I have purchased sterling silver flat washers from such shops. They are not cheap but when I needed them, they had them.

If you can't replicate one change both to get a uniform look. It doesn't take much to make that blade look beautiful.
