It looks like Radio Daze doesn't have a dial for a 1965, but they do have one for a 1968.

http://www.radiodaze.com/silvertone-1968-r12598-dial/

If they make that one, then they can make a dial for a 1965. You may have to get someone to loan you (or them) an original in order to have it reproduced, but Radio Daze is up to the task if you can get a hold of the artwork.

The part numbers appear to be the same for the 1965 and 1968.

Don't expect to get a replacement for 7 cents.

Edit: The RadioDaze part number is not the same as in the Sears parts list so it would be good to check dimensions with them before ordering.

Why not just advertise for an original dial. I'm sure there's a few collectors out there with junk Silvertone 1965 radios or chassis in which they could supply you with an original dial. Place a want ad in the ARF Radio Classifieds and see what happens.

The dials cannot be the same, even if the escutcheons and glass dial covers are the same. The 1965 is a 3-band radio, while the 1968 is a 4-band radio. The Radio Daze dial for the 1968 demonstrates only that they have the ink colors figured out. :)

I agree with Michael that you should post a WTB in the Classifieds. However I'm somewhat less optimistic of finding an original quickly. But you never know till you try.

I thought the Glass-Dial was actually the dial. Now I see that it is called the Indicator in the parts list for the 1968. The dial (Indicator) is omitted from the 1965 parts list.
