I've never even seen a photo of one of those. They are on the website, but they are basically a unicorn

unless you mean the Arion model? that's not a piggy, but it's the same size body. the difference is a piggy is a large bore (835) and the arion is a medium large (789 ish)

If you can't find an Arion, John packer makes a really really good version of it. That's what I use as my teaching horn

My concern with JP is are there parts available if repairs are needed.

I have 6 packer instruments. Parts are easier to get from them than cerveny, besson, VMI, and a bunch of other places.

Joe Sellmansberger is a packer dealer, he can tell you the details, allied carries packer parts now.

The Taylor Arion might be perfect for you

Piggy BBb is the CBB-603. Thomann seems to still sell them. Listed price is low for a new horn, and they indicate they ship flat-rate to the US for shipments <= 31kg. I have no idea whether that would apply to a Piggy or what other costs might be involved.

FWIW, old thread that might apply: http://forums.chisham.com/viewtopic.php?t=62692

Might also want to check German eBay... Cerveny tubas are very common in the Europe, especially in BBb.

Also, Mike Johnson in the UK could probably advise on a new Cerveny Piggy BBb.
