Mike, Doug, and All,

The recent post by Michael Mulgrew is accurate.

The MetSoc only recognizes the name "Los Angeles".

The recent post by Doug Dawn raises a valid question.

I made a rookie mistake 13 years ago and I've been paying for it ever since.

Lesson to all rookies:? don't make rookie mistakes!?
No, seriously, it's okay to self-assign pet-names and even field ID numbers to your meteorites, but DON'T self-assign "001" to "00n" numbers, or try to mimic NomCom formally-approved meteorite names.? Especially when it is based on pre-classification self-pairings.

I asked Bob Verish about this a few months ago.? The MetBul does not
show number designations, it recognizes two stones that make up the
TKW for the Los Angeles meteorite.? The 001 and 002 designations were
internal to Mr. Verish for his own record keeping, but I believe he
said (and I hope he'll chime in and correct me if I am mistaken) he
used them publically a few times and without realizing it the number
designation spread.

-Michael in so. Cal.
