Given that the orignal scans were only fair to begin it, printing the
output to a PDF file will only give you slightly less quality in a PDF
format. You haven't gained anything. Note, you don't need a full version
of Acrobat to print to a PDF file. There are a number of 3rd party
products that can do that already.
