    I purchased one with no tears/holes, just matted fiber, for $125. You might be looking at $75+. You might check with other restorers to see if it has value to them as a core.

    There used to be free sniping programs that bid for you - could bid in the last few seconds, but you could be outbid if you didn't have a high enough top limit. Happy hunting!
