Really NEW, or just new for your museum?  I got a Tek 2465 
on eBay that I am quite happy with, for quite a bit less 
money.  There are some decent import digital scopes (such as 
Rigol) that many people seem to find good.
If you are not familiar with digital scopes, there are some 
gotchas there.  You can't tell the trigger rate from looking 
at the screen, but then they can see what happened BEFORE 
the trigger event, and can freeze a single-shot event for 
you to look at.  The good Tek DPO scopes have not come down 
enough to meet your price range (yet).
