That's it for the July 2017 Find of the Month and a what a good contest it was! Everyone got significant numbers of votes and the result could have gone any of several different ways. In the end though the winner was SUnset2's Old Brass 302 snagged at an antique and collectables show in Portland for only $35! A great Find we will all agree! Congratulations Sunset2. Duffy was a close second with his unique SC speakerphone adjunct acquired from DavePEI on a visit to the Telephone Museum of Prince aedward Island. I've been there.....almost!

Everyone should be proud of their finds and their votes this month. Even with three votes I struggled to decide where to put them.

Thanks everyone for playing and keeping it fun.

Wow, thanks, I'm honored.  My first FOTM.  I didn't expect it, the other nominations were so good.
