The seller's mistake. It's a postcard of the
famous Greensburg KANSAS Pallasite:

The photo on the page indicated above
has the same individual pictured on the
postcard in the recovery effort.

Subject: [meteorite-list] Tennessee fall picture on postcard on ebay.

on ebay is a postcard showing excavation of a supposed 1000lb meteorite in
TN. appears possibly 1930's-1940s cant tell for sure.

But in the usgs met database I dont find any from Greensburg where it was
supposedly found. The database in fact for TN only has one real large
puppy, the Cosby's Creek find from 1837. Two big chunks, one 907KG
(first) one 50.8 (found later).

So in tracking these two, I find some at the TCU (m104.4) collection and
some at the Nat. Museum of History.

So... does anyone have any further information on what might be called the
Greensburg fall, or on the cosby's creek fall?

Knoxville, TN
