Gameboy Pocket Inductor Replacement

I have an old Gameboy Pocket unit that was dropped and does not power on. After disassembly, the only damaged part appears to be a polymer encased inductor mounted on the small sub-board in the bottom corner of the PCB. The polymer canister that holds the inductor coil is breached and the wire has become partially unraveled. The canister is labeled as follows:



I've done some looking around online, and I haven't been able to find anything about this particular part or how to find a replacement. The only option I've been able to come up with is scavenging an entire sub-board from another unit. Any help is appreciated.

Let me know if you want any other images. If needed, I can de-solder the sub-board to see it in more detail.
