I checked out the Littmann sellers mentioned both on this website and on 3M's site (http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Littmann/stethoscope/purchase/where-to-buy/ ). If engraving is not important to you, the very cheapest bottom line, to-the-door price for a new Littmann Cardiology III stethoscope is $151.75 on eBay from a seller named "sv-products". They have sold close to 6,000 items and have a 99.9% feedback rating. They offer them in most colors and shipping is free. And they sell it in the Buy-It-Now format so you don't have to play bidding and/or waiting games. That price beats all others when shipping is included. I received mine within five days and it arrived in a new, sealed box - absolutely perfect. If cost is the bottom line for you as it was for me, this was the cheapest I could find for a new model after a lot of research.
