Hi All,
I respectfully suggest these are not meteorites but rather a
carefully contrived scheme with three suspect IDs:
'little-old-ladies-from-pasadena' from HESPERIA, CA
'dr.moe52' from HESPERIA, CA
'dr.gh' from LAS VEGAS

Too many similarities in the auctions. Highly suspect identities.

A 170 gram individual and some questionable smaller pieces. You fellows are missing out by not getting down to Snyder Hill in Tucson. Only one hunter there last weekend. Lonely.
> And no....as was inferred by Sonny in a recent post...these weren't bought from some itinerant gypsy woman come to Vegas selling rare meteorites. The archives will show that I posted my first Cat Mountain 001 pictures to Gary, Adam, Greg and others asking for help in ID before this broad ever came to town.
