1948 His Excellency NN Crystal

I am looking to identify the correct crystal for a 1948 His Excellency "NN", case # 009342

The existing plastic crystal is a beveled type that does not look to match the adverts, though I could be wrong. It has a deep scratch and I would like to replace it.

Once identified, I would also like to know if anyone here has one for sale?

Thanks -Ken

Ken,

The glass You are showing looks to be for the 'SS' GS CMX326-36.

GS lists the Crystal for the 'NN' as CY262-13G.

Thank you,

What are the dimensions of the CY262-13G? some quick web searching tells me that it may be 11.5MM X 11.3MM; if that is correct, it doesn't seem like the right fit.

I don't have have a precise measuring tool, but the crystal above that it currently has is around 21.5 x 17.5. Is it possible that the NN uses something like the CMX326-35, which is the same size, but rounded instead?

-Ken

I have no idea how GS Crystal stock numbers compare with the actual dimensions of the glass, sorry.

MyBuova member DarHin is the wiz when it comes to Crystals, perhaps a PM to Him would be of better assistance or He may chime in.
