Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
The owner writes: " I am happy to report that it was actually recovered today by a guy who remains nameless here only because I don't know if he would be comfortable with me using his name. He saw someone he knows who sells stuff at the flea market on Ashland buy it at a scrapyard, saw my posting (on craigslist, I think), and went to the flea market and bought it back for me. Amazing. I had gone to that exact flea market Saturday morning on a suggestion from a craigslist reader, but it was not there then. "
