Don't think i would ever re-use a headgasket. Some of the newer motors have reusable gaskets, but they end up leaking over time so I don't know how reusable they really are. I wouldn't reuse any gaskets that are under pressure or hard to get to.

the gasket i reused was apart of a complete gasket rebuild kit that ws like 60 bux. idk what level it was though.

FEL Pro KS2646 Engine Kit Gasket Set | eBay i dont know about that one, it cost me like 59.99 though.
