I think you probably want to restore some of the revision files from a
backup. (Hopefully you did a successful backup somewhere between rev
1450 and rev 2899.)

Let's say you did a successful dump at rev 2000. Then load it in a new
place, and compare the revision files (from the db/revs directory in the
repository). If you see some that have been changed, copy them from the
rev 2000 repository into a copy of the full rev 2899 repository. See if
you can dump that.

If you don't have a backup, I don't know what to suggest.
