In my opinion, YES!  However, it depends on the definition of "overhauled".
If someone who knows these cameras well, such as Sherry Krauter or DAG, it's
a great deal.  "Overhauled" is sometimes an abused term, along the lines of

Remember that any 50+ year old camera will need an overhaul to operate at
optimum performance.  The difference between a "dry" (old, un-overhauled)
camera and an properly overhauled is the difference between a two-minute egg
and a three-minute egg.

 Is a recently overhauled, clean looking  (new leatherette etc.) M3 DS body
(with frame selector) worth $699?
