Vintage Mystery Scavenger Hunt Wrap-up Posts and Prize Opportunity

Greetings, Vintage Mystery Challengers! Well, we're headed towards the homestretch for 2016 challenges and it's time to set the stage for wrap-up posts, prize drawings, and winners. Below, you will find the qualifications for prizes from the original challenge post: 

1. Challengers who complete the minimum six books from a single era will be eligible for a drawing at the end of the year for a book from the prize list.  
2. Challengers who complete 12 or more books (either from the same era or six from each era) will also be entered in a separate drawing--for another chance to win, again for their choice of a book from the prize list. 

In addition:

A grand prize for the participant who finds the most objects overall. In case of a tie, there will be a tie-breaker round. Tie-breaker to be determined.
{I'm pretty sure I know who the winner here is...unless there is a dark horse who has been keeping quiet on their finds....}

Please keep track of your progress and be prepared to submit a final wrap-up post or comment at the end of the year. 

The wrap-up post (or comment) should include the title, author, and 1st pub date of each book as well as the item found.  When you post your wrap-up on the the Linky below, use your name and card fulfillment in the "name" slot to help me identify which prize drawing/s you are eligible for. Use the example which indicates the level attained. Examples:

Bev (Gold 6-11)
Bev (12+)

If you do not blog, please use the same format to indicate your level and to list your books/items in a comment. The wrap-up post will be open until January 7, 2017 and the drawing will take place as soon as possible thereafter.

Thanks, Clint! Glad you had a good time with it. Would love to have you back for another round--or maybe you'd like the Follow the Clues challenge this year.
