Murray is commonly available, however I'm suspicious of a used breaker panel -- it's not the sort of thing you usually get rid of if it's in good working order.

they said that it is from a step up to 200 amp so they dont need the old 100 amp one any more.

My saying is when in dout, throw it out. If your not 100 % sure that it's good then you take a chance of something going wrong. You can good to let's say Homedepot and buy a Square D with breakers in it for under a $100. That's the way I would go.

Not to be alarmist here, but you won't know you got a bad deal until the thing's on fire. If you can do a thorough visual inspection of the gear, and it's not too old it's probably going be okay. If there's any sign of arcing, corrosion or water damage don't install it.
