Hi Carl,

These are truly amazing finds. This is a great example to everyone that
if one meteorite is found return and check for more pieces. Who knows,
you may find something from a different fall. The number one key is to
spend time in the field and to have fun!

Sonny,This is interesting because the seller and finder are also the
original finders of Snyder Hill back in 1995. They also found a pecan
sized cat MT I was never aware of that Bob Haag never got added to the
official record.I also had no idea they were the finders of this new
Cat MT find until now but, I actually took them to the Cat MT
strewnfield back in 1995 and I was with them when they originally found
Snyder Hill.It was interesting because Mike Holden and Jerome Johnson
found the first half of Snyder Hill and the very next day Dave found
the other half on the opposite side of the hill. It seems it had struck
the hill and each half went it's own direction. They were later
reunited and they fit perfectly back together.Bob Haag has said it a
million times. "Go back and search where meteorites have been found
before". It worked again. I talked to Dave tonight for the first time
since 1995 and he told me he had not ever been back since his first
find until this past March when he found this latest Cat MT. 001. This
story has another interesting twist to it. Back then everyone was
worried about ownership. For this reason everyone was afraid to mention
find locations. There was no Met-list to ask questions. Only rumors.
Long story short the true find location of Snyder Hill was eventually
correctly documented and named appropriately. Tonight Dave said he went
back to the hill because that is the only place he had ever found a
meteorite and low and behold he found another of the holy grail of all
impact melt breccias. A new Cat MT itself. He says he sold it to Ruben
for a pile of money and some nice meteorites were thrown in on the
deal. So, looks like Dave finds meteorites every time he hunts. Even if
they were 16 years apart. Great job Dave.Carl--
