I bought a new 1/2” collet for $12 at a pricier place near me last month. They aren’t that much new.

You can find new ones online and at many box stores. I’d really go with new – they’re not that much money, and you don’t have to worry that there may be internal problems (rust, galling etc.) that you can’t see. Cheap insurance against a bit slinging loose!
