David Hardy inquired:

"I'm looking for a stable 5-10 gram part slice of Admire. Anyone out there know of any?"

Yes, Admire is rarely available and mentioning it makes my hair stand on end because
my 92 grams of Admire that I once purchased from the Zeitschels is a heavy ruster. The
Zeitschels had sold another piece to a Swiss collector and he was complaining that his
specimen already started rusting soon after he got it. Nikki Zeitschel called me on the
phone and asked what my specimen looked like. Mine was OK back then but it, too,
started deteriorating about two or three years later whereas my Brenham has been
stable for over 20 years now. Some of you will remember that Alex Seidel can tell you
a different story about his Brenham. Well, Brenham is not Brenham and Admire (so I
hope) is not Admire!

Pallasitically Yours,
