Keep an eye out indeed. As Scott Duff (the Garand guru) once told me, "The harder you work the luckier you get." Dick Hosmer worked hard and fortuitously found one hiding in plain sight and not recognized for what it was. Congratulations!
Having been luck a few times myself, I know how great it feels, and I hope others find unexpected (and underpriced) treasures as you wonder around in person or on line. Good stuff is still out there.
