Documentation is of the utmost importance. For example, I have photos of the owner of Worden holding the piece, a pic of the garage roof and the car that was smashed. I think I still have the cancelled check!

A signed affidavit is always nice. I know Darryl Pitt provided that with every chunk of Valera he sold.

(I really meant to stay out of that discussion, but.............)

Yes, there were two Valera stones, one hammered a cow, the other one simply
impacted the ground.
Now, when you buy a piece of Valera, how do you know that you are getting a
piece of the cow-killer? No blood on it, I believe.
And the question applies to most of the other "hammers" on the market. The
only probable exceptions being pieces with a bit of paint, red for Peekskill or
Worden, yellow for one of the Park Forest. The rest.....???????????
I just sold a very nice slice of Valera, I most certainly did not present it
as a hammer.
Just my opnion.

As it regards Venezuela's extraterrestrial hammering.....Valera is a
