Where to find an extractor?

My new-to-me 1911 Model 8 won't extract and the extractor appears to be missing its edges like my 1906 which does extract. Where can I find a .35 Remington extractor?

Oh oo! Houston, we have a problem.

It feeds from the magazine but fails to extract. Looking at the profile of it compared to my 1906 Model 8, the extractor appears to have the edges missing. The extractor does have a "35" stamped on it.

Broken extractor?
