I have a chance to pick up a Silvertone farm radio, but it’s missing the dial glass, dial glass trim ring, and tuner needle. Other than that, complete. Cabinet solid, chassis looks good, speaker present, knobs appear original.
I’m wondering if the missing parts could ever be obtained or if this is worth pursuing?
What are your thoughts?

A close approximation of the "airplane style" dial pointer can be found on many basket case radios from the era. Don't be afraid to use one -- even if it's wildly mismatched -- until you find the real thing. (How will you align it without one?)

You might find the glass at a clock repair shop, and maybe the brass escutcheon too.

If it's in good condition at a good price and you want a six-volt storage battery radio, you should buy it.

Here's a link to an ARF thread of a set that sold a couple of years ago
