I have used this guy for all of my rocks.
They work fine in the boat anchor rigs.

I've ordered from JAN Crystals and AF4K.

I last placed an order from JAN about two years ago and have ordered from them three times.  They make the crystals to order and it took around 3 weeks from order date to delivery each time.  Communications were good and they told me each time at the time I ordered when they were going to ship.  They are who I'd probably use to get a rock for an "in-between" frequency.  The crystals have the frequency stamped on the case going out several places to the right if that's important.   They had a $25 minimum which meant two crystals ($11 or $12 apiece I forget now),  plus shipping.  The crystals are mounted in a small metal case, but pins are spaced and sized to fit the FT-243 socket and they all work FB with my homebrewed AM and CW xmtrs.  

Bryan, AF4K, seems to have most crystals he advertises -- and he's got quite a list of frequencies -- on hand.  I ordered some rocks from him early last autumn and he filled the order quickly even though he was going through hurricane woes at the time.   He back ordered one crystal, which I got a few weeks later no problems.   He seemed like a really nice guy to do business with and provided prompt emails and all that good follow through stuff.
