One of my top 3 scores of all time, so far.
Tell me about the other two!
I'll share one of my scores. I was in an antique store in Arkansas. There wasn't much I was interested in, and their prices were no bargains. I looked over at a table and there was a stack of 50 or so 78's. The first five or so were the typical 78's you see, Bing Crosby and the like. Then I ran into a Paramount label, then a Clara Smith, then a Bessie Smith, then an early Louis Armstrong. I kept digging and ran across "Black Snake Moan". They were all in pristine condition.
I tried not to hyperventilate and ambled up to the old gent behind the counter. "How much are your 78s?" He replied: "Them with the blue labels are one dollar. The rest are 75 cents. I went back and picked up the entire stack (minus the Bing Crosby duplicates). I laid down my cash and walked out with the best score I've had so far.
