Pretty sure Rares makes reproduction. Unless you're a bit arty talented and wanna do it for the exercise or to save a quid. Or you could just put any old thing, Auntie Nellies initials, your first high school crush etc because who'd know? They're mostly irrelevant now anyway

Thanks for the advice, unfortunately Im a bit of a purest so im trying to get it perfect. Last I checked rare spares had the later style lens that covers all states. This one is weird it is an early one that covers victoria and tasmania and a bit of new south wales. Im thinking of taking it to a sticker maker and getting them to make a sticker on some clear plastic, any better suggestion?

What about an instrument repair place?
Are the letter recessed into the acrylic like speedo and gauge faces?
They can redo numbers and lettering on speedos and gauges so this shouldn't be too hard for them. They would most likely have the correct paint as well.
Some one Lionel Otto Instruments in Queensland might be worth a try.

Old is good.

The letters are painted onto the back they arent recessed. Is there any where in victoria that is good at this type of thing?

That's the slim dial that was on some EH radios. Can't be bought, no one makes 'em.

This is a pic of one I have, maybe you can salvage some info from it.
