Hello, List! Several weeks ago, I acquired a Gladstone meteorite for my collection.
It came with an old Ward's Natural Science label. Upon closer inspection, I noticed
that there was a partially rubbed out white marking on one side. I can make out
a 31--- with the remainder unidentifiable. It sure looks like a Nininger marking.
I have a reprint of Nininger's 1950 catalog which lists only two Gladstone's. I
have been unable to find if Harvey had and labeled this specimen, in his collection
or if Ward's used the same nomenclature and marking style. If someone has a newer
catalog of Harvey's collection, that might list this 110.6 gm Gladstone or know if
someone knows of another source of researching this, let me know.
Thanks a bunch!
