I understand that this whole deal was done before I showed up late Friday afternoon. Too bad - I would have scooped up one for myself! I understand that someone bought four of them.

Thanks to Kevin Jacobson for collecting the photos of the house and stash of insulators from Michael Young. Kevin gave me a copy of them. If some of you folks have more info, please either post your own photos, or forward the stories to me and I will add them here.

As I understand it, Michael Young showed up with over a dozen CD 317s that were found in the joist spaces of the basement of an old house.

Here is a picture of his table Friday afternoon. As I said, by the time I got to the show, the insulators were all gone.

These aren't my photos. I feel a little apprehensive about publishing them. But I do believe that they are important to document a really incredible find, and might be valuable to the hobby in general for future reference. If anyone objects to my posting them, please let me know.
