Default Tube Tester Panel Meter

I bought a box of tubes and other boxes of bits and pieces at a local auction.
There was a tube tester in one of the boxes but the panel meter is missing. According to the diagram on the machine it should be a 1ma FSD meter. I have come across one out of something else that is 1ma FSD and looks about the size to fit.
If it works, where on the scale should it read good or bad when testing a tube. I assume it had a red and green area originally and I wanted to draw this on again, but I'm not sure at what point on the scale.

Try to find a picture of your tester on line somewhere. I'd try google-images or eBay, both current or completed auctions.
