Hi Richard... at long last I've managed to take a picture of mine, dunno if it is original or not but looks as if its been in use for a long time. I think your one looks better though.

Richard & LJ,
                      Here's some ammeter pictures.
The original has no numerals but the most common replacement does.

I do believe... after a memory jog, that the ammeters have a date stamp on the back side. A month and year within a circle if I remember clearly.

Listed by Draganfly with a price , which generally means they have it.

Not sure you will like the price though
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

Some more useless information for you.

The ammeter you need is a CZU27, part no. 36084F

CZ = Centre Zero
U   = Universal mount
27  = Round 1 5/8" diameter, 8 amp.
