WTB: 5.75 headlamp chrome retaining ring for a '80 450SLC

One of the tabs on mine snapped off while changing out my headlamps. I've looked on eBay but the prices seem unreasonable at $80 for a single ring.

How does $20 sound including shipping? I always pick them up at salvage yards when I see them. If interested PM your name, address and email and I'll send you a Paypal invoice. They are polished and I replace the screws and the small nylon washer if needed.

I don't know if they are all the same so I thought I would confirm the tabs are at the top and bottom only.
