This Silvertone 1620, AM/SW, good Silvertone eye tube, a back and all the knobs was like $10 or so at Kutztown last year because of the dial:
Using a photo of a good dial from Gary Rabbit, my wife attempted to print it on a foil-like paper, but the results were not useable. So we just used the photo itself for a dial. We printed it on glossy photo paper and then glued it to a piece of black mat board. I cut out the various holes with various woodworking curved chisels or gouges. It doesn't look too bad.
Here's the cabinet that I started with; it had the typical greenish degraded lacquer.
And here's the finished product. It's one that I'm glad to put behind me
