Well, about 2 years back now at a local 'fest, in NY, a friend got one with the VFO and a dowkey relay for <$100. It was not pristine, but it was all "there"... Hamfests or local Craigslist seems to be the way to go. I've seen Apaches and DX-100s and the like also go for low prices in "as-is" but repairable condition... clean and pristine, usually more. Area of the country matters too, as the "ham density" often controls the supply & demand aspect. Ymmv.
