What i would say to do is yes, do flag it as a expire or dead deal and create a new post sinces actually like you said, it is not a duplicate it is not the same item that you are posting but using the same url, so it should count as a new post. the mods will double check to make sure it is not a duplicate and approve the deal.

I was always under the impression that if you edit a deal that is X in age (I don't actually know the specific number of days, weeks, or whatever), you were accredited as if it was your deal - not just a deal update. However, when I "updated" the deal for the free national parks week for Earth day, I was credited for a deal update. It was a year old when I updated it.
Shrug! Going to need a mod to verify this.

Arsiel is right. I read that after 1 year you no longer earn on a deal, expired or not, so that should mean the new udater would get the full amount? I just hate that if you are the updater you can't fix a missing/poor quality image. Trish, it goes to show how honest you are in updating--a lot of deals just get dupped :S
