Just the usual:  Hit up all the swaps in your area and watch e-bay.  
There are usually a couple on there every month. Prices vary, but with 
the present economy they should be dropping a bit.  Typically the 76s in 
good shape (without the sticky panel), good cosmetically and good tubes 
run between $800 and $1200 although I've seen a few 3-holers go for more 
than that.  I bought one in mint shape (2 tubes) about 7 years ago for 
$1500.  Due to the price of the tubes they've continued to come down in 
price.  Strangely those converted to 3CX800s haven't  been bringing  a 
higher price "in general". Of course you are at the mercy of the quality 
of the work done and unless they included detailed photos it's a crap shoot.
