Default Help with Torn cone was posted in loudspeaker forum

sorry for the cross post but i'd like to get all opinions.

Ok, I was lucky enough to come across an old Scott radio console complete with radio and speaker ( the phonograph was replaced).I took out the radio and speaker to get the cabinet into my crv. i placed the radio and speaker into the car and promptly hit a bump in the road.
Not till the next day did I realize I really messed up and put a hole in the cone.
I feel like an a$$ the speaker is an Altec 604 Duplex from 1946 and was in perfect condition. Damn. I searched the web and came up with a few possible ideas
get it re-coned
http://www.thespeakershop.com/home/speakerrepair.html
or
http://greatplainsaudio.com/
The other idea would be to repair it my self with tissue paper and glue.
what should I do all constructive suggestions welcome I feel horrible enough as it is.
Here are a few photos of the victim

thanks for all of your help

You'll get the same people replying here as in the other thread, so I'll close this one, but if anyone wants to reply, please do so in the original thread.
