These shops have a ton of old worn and broken parts laying around they can send you a photo of, it just might not have come out of your rig.

FYI - that kind of turbo damage is not unusual, and is caused by dust/silica blow-by from using an oiled air filter (or a poor fitting cheap paper filter). Make sure you switch back to an OEM equivalent filter before swapping turbos. Oiled filters are fine on a naturally aspirated engine, but they have less benefit on a turbo motor, and often do cause turbo vane erosion.
