Default E-T-A 50 amp circuit breaker for DC - Anyone know where to buy one??

My DC circuit breaker broke when I tested it (it wouldn't reset), and I can't seem to locate an exact replacement, E-T-A 413. Found only available at 2 sites & one was backordered, the other was around 80.00. Looking to see if anyone knows of a good place to get one reasonably priced. I've put a temp flip switch type in which works all the DC, but its not the correct installation & could flip "off" while underway causing a safety issue. My other question is, I've seen a 100 amp by E-T-A which seems more readily available, can I use this one instead since its a higher amp rather than lower??
Thanks!

well..I certainly wouldn't go with a higher rating breaker ...that could cause a fire or parts to burn....

I'd give this guy a call at lake union searay..he can usually find the part and have it drop shipped to your door....for a price of course..

425-885-2628 and ask for Jim Mcgarrity

Fyi, as a follow up for anyone else looking for one of these very hard to find DC panel 50 amp breakers, I found one on-line for about less than half the price at Allied Electronics (alliedelec.com) for $43.45... below are the corresponding part number and specs.... Some dealers/suppliers wanted well over 100.00 for the same part...

stock# 70129072 part# 413-K14-LN2-50A $43.45 each
Circuit Breaker; Therm; Push/Pull; Cur-Rtg50A; Panel; 1 Pole; Vol-Rtg 28VDC
