Good locksmith experience for older models

I lost the key to my 84 W123 (I know, I know...). The dealer (and Classics Center) gave me the key code, but said that these older keys can no longer be re-made. Apparently the one machine in the U.S. in Texas is no longer working, and there doesn't seem to be a plan to replace it.

Long story short, MB of Seattle recommended a local locksmith to me. Said he does all their work on older Benzes. I gave him the key code over email, and lo and behold he mailed me 2 keys within about a week. Both work flawlessly. He wouldn't even let me pay him until I received the keys and tested them. And super reasonable price ($25!).

Here's his info. I think he'll do this type of work via mail across the country. I paid him via paypal.
