I'd post on an AS/400 or iSeries mailing list - your chances are better.

If you don't really need the physical 'dumb-head', try a 5250 emulator.  There
is one for Linux that works over telnet.

If you go with a dumb-head, get the oldest one you can. :-)  My favorites are
the ancient all-in-one tubes that have the keyboard ringer.
