Hello Tim -
You've found some good sources to support the thinking that this is a true Liangzhu cong, especially the piece from the Christies' auction, which does look strikingly similar to yours. Of course, finding such a piece in a second hand store would be like winning the lottery (not to say it couldn't happen).
You should definately print out hard-copies of your supporting evidence, and if you do discuss with an expert for authentication, share your findings.
Here are some other links which folks might find interesting:
