Need help replacing vintage mold

Hoping for some help.  I accidentally melted an old mould that is very important to us and I've had no luck searching around for a replacement.  

If anyone knows where I could buy one - or even has one to spare they would be willing to sell - please send me a message.

The mould (label attached below) was originally labelled as "Easy as ABC gelatin mould", although we just call it the alphabet mould.  Yes there are lots of alphabet moulds around, including new silicone ones, but we need the specific designs on this one to replace the one I damaged.  Depending on the cost, I would consider paying for postage internationally (to Australia).

Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much!  Not only for spotting the auction (I have been checking Ebay myself but stuff comes and goes...) but thanks to your link, I realised that the plastic mold I've been using is most probably a cheap rip-off of a cast-iron cookie mold design by John Wright...

...and there are loads of these available!  I really had no idea...

 

You have made my day 🙂  Thanks again.

@ChrisZ,

 

I'm very happy you found your replacement mold! (mould?)

 

When this thread first popped up I thought you might be talking about some of the tin molds for gelatin or mousse that are plated with copper that were popular back in the 60's and 70's here in the US. As part of my retro country kitch decor in my large kitchen, that I love a lot, I have five of these molds hung on the walls. There is an elaborate heart (smaller) and larger ones of a swimming fish, a leaping fish, a lobster and a rooster. They are all quite detailed with feathers on the rooster and scales on the fish. I have never used then to mold anything, but I just love them anyway.

 

I was hoping I would have something you like that I could send you, but such is not the case, so I'm very glad you found what you wanted.

      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers

      I couldn't think of a better way to word that! 
       
      I'm experimenting with adding a very small amount of cocoa butter decoration onto bars I'm making and am not sure whether I should heat the moulds up with a hair dryer as I would for completely bare moulds or just abandoning this step. I would avoid blowing directly onto where the cocoa butter is as much as possible. Thoughts?

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?
