Queen DOA in nuc, no fresh eggs

Looking for advice on how to approach this. I received a nuc this morning. I inspected frames as they came out and saw that they were backfilling nectar in the brood nest and I saw no fresh eggs. Some young larvae.

Looking for advice – how do I broach this with the seller? The nuc was in rough shape, with some pretty chewed up/cratered comb. And … no living queen. A bunch of queen cups though that I smushed before I found her dead in the box. (I know, dumb move). I can give them a frame of brood from the neighbors to hatch a new queen but I sure wish I didn’t have to.
