I have two that are broken (opposite ends) that can be combined to make a good one if you want them. Sorry, but that is the best I can do for you.

One is broken in the middle of the sharp bend that goes to the rear of the tank. The other one is broken about 4" from the other end that goes to the front. I have the broken section for the one at the rear.

Do you need the brackets or the cable? The reason I ask is that you could just use picture hanging wire. It comes in different diameters and it has the same twist as a tow cable and all you would have to do is glue the cable eyelets to the end of the wire after you cut them off the broken plastic cable and drilled them out. The other cool thing about picture hanging wire is that it will keep its shape when you bend it.

That is what I do with mine. I cut the brackets out of the cable. Drill them out, and run real wire through them. That is why I don't have a bunch of cable laying around as I cut them up for the brackets. I do have an unopened Sherman. I will have a look tonight and see if I have one for you.

Cheers

The only cost will be the price of the postage. PM me your address and I will get them out to you.
