Go for a relaq - you'll save a lot of cash. USA Horn's got one (a little ugly but who cares?) for $2800.
Mine cost a little less than that, similar condition, plays like a dream. I thought about having it completely refinished, but I think the most I'll do is have the engraving re-cut. I kind of like its gnarly-looking relaq job. No accounting for taste, I suppose.
