Definitely agree with others here; repair the coupling pin yourself, or replace the damaged prism with another prism. KEH usually has some available. Maybe you could get a DP-12 and convert your camera to an F2AS, or an eye-level prism, the DE-1, which solves the meter coupling problem quite nicely by having none in the first place... I have an old F with the FTN prism, and I've had to do a couple repairs over the years, including straightening out the coupling pin and cleaning the inside of the eyepiece. Not that hard, really, just takes a little patience.
