I don't have a spare but note while searching that the bezel is different between Packard and Clipper. Packard's had a partial brushed finish in the area around the lettering while Clipper's was all polished chrome. Otherwise they fit the same.

No idea how less available or pricy the bezels are now but a few years back they were in short supply and expensive so can only suspect it has gotten worse.

If it becomes hard finding a replacement and you want to try your hand at a repair I developed a method at that time that seemed to work and made a few kits to give away. Don't recall any feedback from anyone I supplied with a kit so do not know how many were actually installed or how easy or difficult it might have been and whether the repair works long time. I did make a few changes between kits trying to make things stronger yet simpler and easier to build but was never completely happy with everything and feel there is still room for improvement.

Here is what I ended up with and if you or anyone else wants to try your hand in making them or improve on the process I can supply some basic instructions, dimensions and maybe better photos but no detailed drawings. I no longer have the interest, eyesight or dexterity to make them so if anyone else thinks it worthwhile feel free.

Howard real nice kit!! Yeah they are expensive. Do you have any more kits, or at least the ring I could purchase from you!! I like the fix on this as these bezels are fragile.
My cell phone is 203-870-5248.. Many thanks Gary

There is a clipper version on ebay - better than a broken one.

Pretty sure I've got one or more senior bezels, I'll check in the AM.

UPDATE: Sorry, I found a couple of ignition switches but no bezels.
