They're not going to come cheap, unless they're in a condition you wouldn't let your dog sleep in it. Best chance of securing one is probably with one of the airline scrap companies, but do not except them to part with one in reasonable condition for a pittance. You'll be competing with companies who specialise in taking those chairs, and other aviation hardware, and converting them into furniture to be flogged off at eye watering prices.

B777LRF thank you. I finally did find one website and you are correct. While you can get a jumpseat for a mere $195 the Captain/FO seats are around $2,500 range. My buddies gf is the one trying to secure one, she asked me to do the research. Not sure if she's willing to spend that much, we shall see.
In any case, it seems as if these are sold to be functional and used in an actual aircraft. That is not her criteria, so I'm hoping to find her one in a little less good condition which maybe cheaper.
Here's what I've found so far. Cool to look through.
