[meteorite-list] Is that all there is, my friends?

Vienna may have more Canyon City, California although none is listed in the
catalogue, so that could add a minor 8.7 grams. Total Known weight listed
in Catalogue is 8,600 grams and weight of specimens in museum collections is
7,738 grams. That leaves 862 grams wandering the earth.
Vienna may have some Canon City, Colorado although the only amount ( 8.7
grams) listed in the Catalogue matches the obviously erroneous label on the
iron (not H6) specimen on display. I will leave it them to sort it out.
Regards, Fred Olsen
