Unhappy Help! I'm Looking for a turkey beard

Alright, here's the story.

Spring '06 I took a nice turkey with two beards (1 at 9.5" and 1 at 6")
He had a great fan which I fanned out, dried, etc.

The problem is my buddy (it was on his farm in Ballinger) asked me to let him put my beards on a "beard board" that he was going to make so I left them with him. Well he put them in a gun rack in the hall with a couple of other beards and never got around to making the beard board.

Well, a couple of months ago I decided I've got to mount that fan and asked my buddy to get my beard when he went back to Ballinger since he never made the beard board. I told him I wanted it back to mount with my fan.

When he came back from Ballinger he had some bad news for me. His cousin's wife had CLEANED house and thrown away my beards. I don't have an extra beard and only got to hunt once with my bow this turkey season because of work.

Is there anyone that has an extra beard sitting around that is at least 8" or more that they could send me? I could pay for shipping through Paypal. I just really need one to go with this beautiful fan that right now is just collecting dust.

Thanks in advance to any AC bro or sis that can help me. You can send me a PM.
