Billydee was selling some Teac/Nak clones recently. Not sure if they are still around and exactly how much he wanted for them? But they were around that range. Always had good luck with the omni caps onstage.

FYI- my extra Teac/Tascam PE-120 microphone pair (Nak CM-300 clones) sold recently for $150.

I'd spend a little extra and get the Line Audio CM3's
Depending on exchange rate and where OP is located, they may actually come in under his budget of $200 each.  I recently paid 250 euros for a pair, including shipping to the US.  At today's exhange rate that would be around $310.

I'd spend a little extra and get the Line Audio CM3's that everyone raves about.

https://www.gearslutz.com/board/remote-possibilities-in-acoustic-music-and-location-recording/996537-line-audio-cm3-vs-schoeps-mk21.html

Beat me to it.  :D  Check out the Team Line Audio thread here on TS and this other HUGE thread on Gearslutz about them.

Also, you should buy them from JP Gerard at No Hype Audio, who is cheaper than the eBay link here and has first rate customer service.  250 EUR for a pair shipped to USA as heathen said.
