Spotmatic Chrome Bottom Covers

Anyone know of a source remaining on the planet where I can obtain an unused chrome bottom cover for a Spotmatic F and SP1000? Thanks.

unused chrome bottom cover
Welcome to Pentax Forums.

By "unused" do you mean 'mint, new, never used' or 'not being used by someone'?

As a start, here's a place in Victoria, BC: Pentax - Camera Traders

The two plates appear to be in good condition, but they have wear marks.

I’m away from home, but I might have a NOS SP-F bottom plate (but it might be a s ESll). eBay search Spotmatic+bottom+plate or Pentax+bottom+plate. You will get hits

Why worry about it being unused? If that's seriously important, then find an unused camera and swap it out; but what's the point of that?

base plates comes up every now and then on eBay. There might be an issues with some of these, since I have been told that the factory actually shipped them with a battery installed. These tend to leak over time.
