If you carefully remove the circular plate on top of the knob, (the shift
pattern) the leather will peel off the wooden knob. If you sand it a bit
with light sandpaper, and then spray it with a polyeuathane spray, it will
have a nice protected wood finish. When it dries, use a strong glue to
re-fasten the label to the top.
I did this, and it came out real nice!
