AS251 comes to mind as one of few 3-digit ones that has existed, but doesent anymore (atleast not in DFZ).

But do you really want a used and abused old asn? The old logic with the lower ASN you have the bigger E-penis you got doesent really apply anymore since the biggest players on the Internet doesent have 3 or 4 digit ASNs anymore.
