Here is one that popped up on GI today that may be beyond restoration. Needs a bit of stock work --

IMO the seller is a bit optimistic at $949. It caught my attention as it is serial number 1531 and a decade or more ago I bought the complete forearm and most all of the internals for 1530 off ebay.
