I picked up a Zenith 159 and it's missing the smaller speaker along with the cone that goes over it. Any idea how difficult these are to track down?

you mean a 12-U-159, 1937 year.
If you use Stein's radio books for reference, he had a nasty habit of abbreviating model numbers ! Eventually he began using full ones but in the process he really confused the entire radio parts suppliers like me because customers used his truncated model numbers for reference.
The answer to your inquiry is "no", those are not easy to find. How many of that model radio are being scrapped out? Not many !

So, I would amend your header and place it in the Classifieds...
"WTB: Zenith 12-U-159 5" midrange speaker"
