Hi Geoff!

> I will have a feature article in the upcoming August 2004 issue of
> "Meteorite" magazine about the Franconia strewn field, or the
> "Graveyard of meteorites" as our friend Jim Kriegh calls it. The
> title of the piece is "Lingua Franconia: Deciphering Arizona's
> Meteorite Graveyard."

Look forward to reading it!

This is sounding more and more like a match to Dutch Flat. Dr. Wasson
noted the close similarity of Dutch Flat to Sikhote-Alin (as well as
Ainsworth). All three are low-Ir, IIAB irons. Would love to find one
of these irons myself -- I'll be returning to Franconia this fall when
temperatures cool off a bit. --Rob
