Thinking about buying a T991 unlacquered but came across a T880, silver (1986) for $1,450. Heard these 880 are good horns. No dents, just dull silver...Is it worth buying and saving some dough or should I go with the 991?

I would try both horns and buy the one that plays the best. There isn't enough difference in the 880 through 99x to definitively say which is better. You're in a great position to be able to choose among these unique tenors.

Let us know how it works out.

Yes, I would consider the T880. They are excellent horns. The price is OK if it is ready to go. I would substract any needed work from that price. Go play it!
