Can anybody suggest a source for US spec buttons for my Frankfurt radio?

Which version?

I suggest a 3d printer.

"Parts Radios" are much cheaper and usually the best source for this sort of thing. Buy the radio, steal the parts off it you need and then resell the radio once again for parts. If you don't need the radio working "Untested" radios are a great gamble. If you hook it up and it works, then the bonus is that you'll recoupe all your costs and get the buttons free.

Either that method or buy a lesser Blaupunkt radio like an Emden or Hamburg and rob the knobs off it.

PS is your radio US Spec? If it's Euro the frequency range is opposite from the US and there will be no "US" after Frankfurt on the label.
