John, as far I know Astatic has not manufactured them in several years.  
There are though some fellas who have replaced the 104 crystal or 
ceramic element with a wide variety of elements ranging for Radio Shack, 
those supplies by Mouser Electronics, and Heil microphone HC-4/5 
elements with appropriate impedance transformations/preamp's I think 
with Heil.
I remember a contact on AM with a ham who was using a 3 dollar crystal 
element from Mouser. 

Hope this helps.

73 es Merry Christmas
