    I have a need for a dial for a Marconi model 85. or similar model. The one I need is for the tombstone pictured,
    but a similar one would work.
    There are several Marconi’s that used basically the same dial with a little different configuration.
    The distance across the glass is 9 inches
    Let me know what you have .
    Thanks Dan in Calgary.

    John, that would be very good if you can send a photo.
    The one in the first photo is the same radio we need it for.
    Maybe you can also tell me the length of the dial. I presume it is the same from the center to each end?

    Here is what I have :

    Part number of the glass is 60510
    The glass is 8-3/8″ w x 6-7/16″ h
    From the left of the “K” on the left to the “.” after the “C” on the right is 6-1/2″
    From the top of the “5” on the top of the dial to the bottom of the “9” at the bottom of the dial is 5-1/8″
    From the left of the left oval hole to the right of the right oval hole (only in the black paper – glass is solid) is 3-3/8″
    From centre to centre of the two round holes in the glass and black paper is 1-1/4″

    Let me know how this fits for you.

    Thank you for the photo;
    I just want to make it clear , that what my friend needs is the white pointer that goes on the radio.
    He has the glass and everything else.
    The photos I sent you show two different pointers, but as long as it is long enough, it should work
    Can you send me a photo of the pointer?
    We would like to know how much you want for the pointer, including shipping. to

    Thank you very much.

    I misunderstood. I thought by “dial” you meant the glass part with the numbers. I don’t have the indicator/needle/pointer. All I have is the dial glass.
