    I will try to locate an old email I received a few months ago from someone claiming
    to have some for sale. (He was responding to an old message board post of mine but
    I wasn't able to pay the price he was asking at the time).

    I don't know anything about this individual but will try to find and post it to you
    within a day. I think he is in Canada. Hopefully something good may come of it.
