I recently acquired the Command Module flown altimeter or g meter cover from Apollo 13.
It is 1.75" in diameter and carries the serial number SEB33100063-301. The flown manifest for that mission refers to it simply as a cover.
The only other type I have seen online is an altimeter cover with a serial number ending as 302 (from another Apollo mission) and they are larger in diameter.
Can anyone advise if this actually is the g meter cover, and if they have an identical type from another mission, what it's diameter is and any other technical information? Thanks!

For reference, the altimeter control panel hole is about 3.2" in diameter, and the g-meter hole is about 1.9" in diameter.
