I would check with the Nikon distributor in your country. In the US you order parts like that directly from the distributor's parts organization rather than via a retail organization. I'm not sure if it will be the same, but it's worth a try.

Nikon USA scratched mine while in service. I reached back out to them, they sent me a postage paid label, and it was sent back to them. Hurricane Sandy slowed down the shipping process, but a couple of weeks later, it returned home with a brand new baseplate, with the plastic protector underneath. It was briefly on "parts hold", so I am guessing they get them in from Japan. But they are available brand new. Have also seen occasionally on eBay.
