After looking at the material I cut for Steve Arnold (Met Men), it appeared to be an L4-5 to me. Within the matrix there were some well-defined chondrules and the white clasts contained some chondules that were not so well defined. It reminded me quite a bit of Ourique or Noblesville, both type 4s.

The geologist looking at it think it to be a highly equilibrated H however, with the very different lithologies and nodular looking white clasts this may easily be an H/L.
What you are making an evaluation with are the specimens you may have seen. Just as valid. This may be a real life example of the fable of the blind men describing and elephant. Each does so from their perspective. One sees it as a giant snake( trunk) the other as trees( legs)etc. No bets as to H or L are beyond reason.
Good Luck and Good weather from rainy PA.
