Just purchased a Farmsworth cc-70. Behind the glass is what appears as a brownish grey felt or cardboard. In looking up an image of this radio on the internet it appears that the backing behind the dials should be “black”. Anyone know if this is an insert or Bakelite backing that is available to replace?

These are pics of mine and the one I found online. You can clearly see the black backing behind the station numbers on the dial.

This Farnsworth backlit paper diffuser looks original to me

Great - thank you ! That was very helpful. Then mine must be original too.

Thank you so much for posting your pic.
