Probably the Defiant.  Enterprise did such a great episode for the lost ship, I hope to get something more memorable in Crew.

At this point I am not actually certain which ship, canonically, can be the
third Constitution Class vessel to appear in CREW. I have to figure out which
ships from the TOS time period are "available".

We know the Repulic and the Farragut were operative sometime during
Spock's 13-year tour under Pike, since Kirk was on both ships. One could
extrapolate that they were contemporaries of the Enterprise in that sense.

Was it established in classic series which registry number is accurate for the Farragut?

The STAR TREK ENCYCLOPEDIA lists the following:

USS Constitution NCC-1700
USS Enterprise NCC-1701
USS Hood NCC-1703
USS Lexington NCC-1709
USS Yorktown NCC-1717
USS Defiant NCC-1764

and those with problematical registration numbers…

USS Eagle NCC-956
USS Constellation NCC-1017
USS Republic NCC-1371
USS Potemkin NCC-1657
USS Excaliber NCC-1664
USS Exeter NCC-1672
USS Essex NCC-1697
USS Intrepid NCC-1831
USS Endeavor NCC-1895

Technically, the Defiant's registry might also represent a bit of a
problem, if the numbers are taken to be sequential. If the Enterprise
was about 20 years old when we saw her first on TOS (based on current
"official" dating), Star Fleet would have had to crank out sixty three ships (of
all classes, presumably) in quite a bit less than those 20 years. Perhaps not
as difficult as it sounds, tho it still seems to me that it would take a while to
build a Constitution Class ship, even with 22nd/23rd Century technology.

Those others, with the much lower numbers than the Constitution
open a real can of Regulan bloodworms.

Anyway, as it stands right now, the Yorktown seems like my most likely
choice, since we know she survived TOS and was even "refitted" a la the
Enterprise. The Yorktown is seen as an operating ship in THE
VOYAGE HOME, set long after the period of CREW.

(Note that the Farragut is not listed as Constitution Class.)

The Yorktown is a recon and was never established in Star Trek IV I thought.

I have not checked the movie, but according the the ENCYCLOPEDIA it is the
Yorktown whose Captain reports attempting to deploy a makeshift solar
sail after the Probe shuts down power on the ship.

Saratoga was the Reliant-class ship we saw at the beginning of the movie encountering the probe for the first time. 

Admiral Cartwright's sitrep to the Federation President has him calling up the Yorktown's report to Starfleet, in which that ship's captain mentions the solar sail attempt (as well as the amount of time that has past since crossing paths with the probe).

True.  I'm not sure if the Yorktown was established as being renamed as the Enterprise in the film or after the films release.  Star Trek V gives a different impression the 1701-A was a new ship with shakedown operations at hand.  1701-A is a new star fleet vessel not a refit star ship.

Ah, so the Yorktown was the one commanded by Vijay Amritraj.

++++

I know the previous DC Comics Trek adapations are not considered canon, but the "Debt of Honor" graphic novel revealed the USS Farragut to be a Constitution class ship with the registry NCC-1702.

Edited to remove unnecessary "Debt of Honor" info.

Uh, just checked my Star Trek Encyclopedia (1999 ed)...  The individual entry for USS Farragut is catagorizing her as a Constitution-Class with registry NCC-1647... Well, that opens up the forementioned can of blood worms.
