One in a Copal 3s will probably be around US$1000-$1250 (according to Kerry Thalmann's sale from around this time last year (http://reallybigcameras.com/Kerry/Thalmann_Lens_Sale.htm)).

A second hand Copal 3s will set you back around US$250-500, depending on condition. New, it will cost you US$1190 plus postage (http://www.skgrimes.com/products/new-copal-shutters/standardcopals).

Getting an aperture scale made at SK Grimes (http://www.skgrimes.com/services/large-format-photography-repair-services) will be US$50-60, plus postage, if you don't have one to model the new one on.

So, I would figure around US$400-500 in the barrel.
