Asahi 49mm front caps

I recently bought a set of Super Takumar lenses on Craigslist- a 50 f/1.4, 135 f/3.5, and 28 f/3.5. The lenses are in great shape, but were missing some front and rear caps. I've already found replacements for the rear caps, but now I'm looking to buy 2 49mm front caps. They must be the original, metal "Asahi Pentax" caps because I'm a bit obsessive with maintaining the original equipment

I have found them from $10-18 a piece on Ebay, but I paid around that much for some of my lenses... so the Ebay route seems ridiculous. I was hoping somebody on here had some extras they were willing to part with on the cheap. Basically, I'd want to pay just a few bucks + shipping.
Thanks!

No metal "Honeywell Pentax" caps? Those are much more common in the US...

Ahh, thank you very much for the KEH link, monochrome. I wasn't aware of being able to get them there. If nobody is trying to get rid of them on this forum, then that will be my backup plan.

vonBaloney - I prefer the Asahi caps. The reasons are purely irrational/emotional
