Welcome on post.. Oh yeah 100% MRC-69V..Although still searching for provenance I am certain it spent time in Nam. I love the box, but its been a lot of work to get it back from the butchery chop job, and to correct the hole from a window AC.
As for recommendation, shop around, and don't be impulsive.. a deal will come around contingent on your level of and willingness to work for it.. Start scouring GP, GD, GSA, GL, to name just a few.
There's a couple of guys that have spare parts in your area, just post up in parts wanted on here
