Uh-huh... Love 'em, or just hate them, the Compact Cassette hits 60 years ago this September 2023. And, surprise, they are still made in Missouri by NAC.  https://www.nationalaudiocompany.com/    Looks like you could order just replacement cassette cartridge shells and the hinged cases. Albeit, I'm a little tempted to try and test their CrO2 formula. This link has a VID on NAC,  https://www.wsj.com/articles/cassettes-are-making-a-comeback-but-there-s-a-kink-nobody-makes-tape-1509723435
A lot of cassette gear is still restorable.
I must be getting older. Now, when I watch a 007 James Bond flick, Ms. Moneypenny is even looking more attractive.
