New hide for older antlers

I got a nice 9 point in 2000 and only had the antlers mounted onto a wooden back. I was wondering how hard is it to get a taxidermist to mount these antlers with a cape from another deer. I don't want it to look odd when done due to it not being from the original deer. Also is there a big price difference.

As far as price goes it depends on weather you supply the cape or not. It's the same price if you supply the cape, if not it'll run you around $100.00 more. (cost of the cape)

cost of the cape price depends on the size of rack say its 18" i would put it on a 19"-20" cape cost roughly $175 plus the cost of the mount i do anywhere from 3-7 remounts a yr.
