Jim, you can pull the meter, carefully pull the meter apart and scan the 
face/scale, and have a print-shop make a replica of it.  Then, find a 
replacement meter, (typically 50uA=FS) take it apart, carefully remove 
the face, and replace it with the replica, and 'presto', you've got a 
working, new-scale S-meter for the receiver again.

No... it's not original, but these old 50 and 60 year old radios are 
running -very- short on 'spares'.  Time to compromise.

Just my .02c worth.

Here's a few scan's/pictures of the face...
