    I bought a 3885 crystal from him. Very quick shipping.

    Do you mind sharing what you paid for it?

    I just came from ebay looking for a cheap one close enough to grind.

    I'm Steve Johnston, WD8DAS, the new owner of AF4K Crystals. Marie Carling forwarded your email seeking to order an FT-243 crystal on 3.885 MHz.

    I do not yet have the new web store operational but I am eager to help you with this order if possible.

    I can supply a modern crystal in a vintage FT-243 holder, labeled and tested, for $22 plus $4 shipping. Total would be $26. I could get it on its way to you in the next day or two if desired.

    If you'd like to proceed with the order you can send the funds via PayPal to my account sbjohnston@aol.com

    Or if you'd like to mail a check it would need to be made out to me: Steve Johnston, 2309 Tulare St., Fitchburg WI 53711.

    Thank you!

    When I was a Novice in 1967, a "new" FT-243 crystal was $2.95. (Most crystal manufacturers then reused WW2 surplus for FT-243 crystals, sometimes with new quartz, sometimes with reused reground quartz.)

    $2.95 in 1967 inflates to $23.23 per the Westegg Inflation Calculator. So $22 is actually a bargain.

    Steve, although I only have one crystal, it is rather special.
    I want to wish you the best of success as you continue the business.
