Hi,
I have two Truetone radios I'd like to complete and am looking for two parts:

1. First is a Truetone D724 that is missing the tuning eye escutcheon (see top circle in pic).
2. Second is a Truetone D727 that is missing one of the tuning buttons.

If anyone has either of these items, I would love to hear from you. Thank you!

Those buttons decay, and when they do, they shrink, so getting them off the shafts is impossible without shattering one. One solution is to use one type of clock radio knobs that can be found that has no indexing fin. I might still have a set of brown ones .
