Default PAM 710 volume knob wanted

Long shots don’t come much longer than this one! A kind soul has donated a working PAM710 to the Black Country Living Museum for its planned new radio shop, Stantons:

The radio needs cosmetic restoration, and the biggest issue is that half the transparent volume control knob is missing, see photo.

If anyone has such an item and is willing to sell or donate it to the cause, we’d be pleased to hear from you! Making a new one is not impossible, but for the moment I can only think of making a mould from the complete and matching tuning knob, and trying to cast a replica in clear resin. That won’t be easy.

Thanks for any help or advice,

Phil
