Default GEC Minitest MKiii meter movement

I have a Minitest MKiii in good condition, but with O/C meter movement :-( Does anyone have one of these in any condition, but with known working meter they would sell for a nominal sum?

Great little meters. I bought a dozen or more many years ago, tidied them up and sold for about a fiver. Today I have just one left, and that has a sticking movement after it was dropped. For general odd jobs, my "go to" meters. I would happily buy half a dozen, but KEEP them. Sorry, I don't have a spare movement.
Les.

Thanks Les, they don't seem so common today. I picked mine up in a general junk shop about a year ago. It was in good physical condition, but unfortunately O/C meter. I've managed to repair a couple of O/C meters in the past where the break was at the end, but this seems to have a break in the middle.

OT we enjoyed our stay in Kirk Michael a few years back, pity the mobile chippy has now stopped operating
