Correct bulb for 69 center console guages??

I'm trying to figure out what LED bulb I can put into my console gauges. The problem I have is the 1893's that I took out don't seem to be the correct ones. The manual I think says 1445 if I'm reading it right. I've looked at past posts that said they had 194's but that's a wedge type bulb. the 1893's are mini bayonet. Any help?
Thanks

Yeah it was an oblong bayonet bulb. Most places are selling round globe bulbs. I haven't seen an LED small enough to fit.

Thanks. So I guess my gauges should have 1445's in there. I'm trying to find a green LED for these gauges which is proving difficult.
