I'm looking for a knob for a Motorola 53H1 radio. The one I have has only one knob. :cry:

This is what the radio looks like:

If anyone wants to see the entire ad from the 1953 Life magazine, here is a scan of it.

I may have this knob. Can you give me dimensions and describe if it is a round shaft or D shaft?

The knob is 1 5/8 wide, and 7/8 deep not including the shaft. The shaft is 1/2 inch deep and fits a splined shaft. Here are a few pictures of the one knob I have up close:
