I've got an ex GPO moving coil multimeter (it may be a Taylor - I don't currently have it to hand). I got it off a stall in St Albans that used to sell surplus equipment cheap. The needle was stuck and I discovered that it was owing to a small piece of iron swarf on the magnet. I removed it with sellotape and it's been fine.

Moving coil meters are still useful for 'peaking'.
