WTB: 701C Keyboard Cover/Shelf

Offers welcome... Got myself a relatively handsome looking 701C, however the labels/logos/icons below the LEDs are smudged for some reason - really triggers my OCD.

If anyone has one of these keyboard covers/shelves please let me know, preferably NOS but I understand just how unrealistic that may be.
