"wds2185" - I'll throw my hat, and the Dean Candlestick, into the ring.  This one's a keeper and it only set me back $125

"Rigger1" got this Blue painted B1 for $20 at an antique mall!

I was in a local antique mall the other day and saw a Western Electric 202 displayed. I checked the price tag and it was twenty dollars. It was near complete and had a clackety dial, so I decided to go for it. There is one problem however. Some where along the line it was painted blue.

"Kidphone" stummbled upon this "reproduction" Hubcap sign on ebaY for only $8 Buy it Now on ebaY. What could he lose at that price. When it arrived and turned out to be ORIGINAL doug was mildly pleased to say the least. Unfortunately he left it out in the front yard and now it could be months before he finds it under all the snow that fell in the latest snow storm.

Here's the complete dicussion:
