Why not just ask an invertebrate supplier for some DOA specimens?

I get stuff fairly regularly for museum work this way.

You're not likely to find shed land hermit crab exoskeletons I'm afraid, they should be consuming most if not all of it each time they moult. Leftover fragments usually get buried when they leave their cave (they moult underground) or get found and eaten by the rest of the colony at a later date. Regaining the goodness in it is an important part of the moulting process.
