[vcf-midatlantic] Looking for a mostly working SID chip

Not sure I can spare one (my C64s are very disorganized right now), but wanted to let you know that the going price for a SID on eBay is around $40. If you find one cheaper than that, grab it.

My new-to-me C64 has a very failed 6581 SID. 2 voices are bad (one is
mostly stuck on), it gets super hot, and after running for a while it makes
the machine lock up.

Does anyone have a mostly-working SID they would want to part with?

PS: Sidbench shows just how broken this one is. I was rather bummed since
this seems to be a low hour C64. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU88B_mWQM8
