Dumb question for the group, I came across a really nice Vendo 81a, all original, cools great, etc, only a few small dents etc.  What is the going value for a great original 81?

You can't say a few small dents and great original in the same sentence. A rough (needing restoration) A starts at about $1300. Decent original (garage machine) $1800. Very nice original as in way to nice to restore $2500-$3000+, depending on how nice. The A version is always about 25% -35% less in value from both B/D version.

good point re dents, only a small one in the back that will never be seen.  Too nice to restore, even the original cord was intact.

I have an original 81a myself. 

I bought my machine 5 years ago for $2,500.  The machine had lived indoors it's entire life and was in very good/excellent original condition.   

Perhaps I overpaid at that time, but it didn't matter to me.  I could afford it and it was exactly what I wanted; an original, unrestored Vendo 81.

I have no clue on what the current value is on an 81A.  I

Good luck.  happydrinkers

I have a 9+ Vendo 81A and I wouldn't sell it even for $4,000. I'm not saying it's worth that because I know it's not but it's worth that much to me.
