Julesburg, L3.6; L3.7;

Find 1983, Colorado, USA

A single mass of 57.9 kg was found in a landfill at Julesburg.

- examination of main mass suggests three smaller
individuals have spalled during ablative flight

Signed: Proud owner of a 43.5-gram slice* + thin section

* Purchased from Walter and Niki Zeitschel in 1987

Thank you Bernd.
According to "Meteorites from A to Z" and Blaine Reed, there is more.
So I just called Blaine, who was watching the snow fall, and he told me he
believes that about half a dozen small individuals have been found in the area
by the local farmers over the years.
Maybe more will show up in the future.
