When the black & yellow model was out, you didn't get several posts with the bike. If you wanted the zero, you had to specify as much on your order, and it was the only post you got. As such, and because the black/yellow colorway only lasted 2 years, it's pretty much impossible to find.
I hunted forever, called almost every Specialized dealer in the country, and called Specialized so many times to have them check their spare parts bin, all to no avail. In the end, I just bought a red zero post off of eBay & had it custom painted. Wish I would have just done it in the first place. I'd recommend the same to you both.
I sent him the fork as well as the seatpost, so he could match the shade of yellow on the fork as close as possible when painting the post.
Cost was for strip, sand, repaint, clear, wet sand, buff, etc.. Came in at $110 total.
Here's a few pics of before & after:
