On your last photo you are showing the place where the capacitor WAS. You could have left it in the radio , so it looks like it is working. It does not make a lot of difference whether you cover the hole up or not. if you come across an old one you could always install it over the hole.
Any very serious collector is not going to want this particular radio, so it does not matter.
I have bought several radios that had the cap can missing, but the part about the hole did bother me sometimes , because before I got the radio [while it was in a shed or barn] mice would get in through the hole and chew up the coils and wires. They will make nests in the radio chassis.
Here is a Rogers 10-12 the way I got it
