A good source of replacement displays is from 12C of the same vintage, 
there was lots of them produced and they can often be obtained for a 
reasonable cost.  If you you look in the archives of the forums on 
hpmuseum.org you will find advise on what to look for for a suitable 
replacement.  I have done the surgery myself and it is not too difficult.
