No, not at all. People will pay for the history.

Look at the old Western Electric 300B audio tube (valve). These things
skyrocketted to several hundred dollars each. A few years ago, Westrex
decided to tool up and make them again. They produced 300Bs that are
_identical_ to the old ones. What did the price of the old ones do? Well,
not much. A little bump, thats it.
