Trust me, if I could have afforded it at the time I would have had a new one made. I was going through some rough times financially. Between my mom and my uncle (who's a dentist) all I would have had to pay was the lab costs for the crown (a few hundred dollars), but even that would have been more than I could have afforded at the time. Neither my mom nor uncle saw any issue with putting it back in, so after running it through the sterlizer twice it went back in. It was in for a few years but eventually the root canal failed (unrelated) and I now have an implant in place of that tooth. Even though I had lived with the crown for a few years I was glad to get a replacement that hadn't gone any further than my mouth.
