    Nikon F shutter speed dial

    I recently scored a classic Nikon F, chrome, leather insert on prism. In good cosmetic condition, considering its age - a few scuffs, two little dents on the prism housing. The shutter sounds good. A little dirt in the viewfinder.
    But...the speed markings on the shutter speed dial have worn/flaked off. Since the dial has no stop positions this makes shooting difficult. Any suggestions for a fix? Other than the meter prism! I'd like to keep the cost down, of course!
    Many thanks in advance!

    As I recall those marking are not engraved into the dial, they're just painted on; correct? If they are engraved you might be able to use something like a lacquer stick to fill them in.

    That... Or find a replacement knob,
