If you find a 10.01 pound meteorite on federal land, do not take a picture of it with your cell phone if you are a poacher.? The GPS coordinates will be imbedded in the image.? The Onstar or other system in your car will also track every one of your moves. This is how rental car agencies can tell if you have taken one of their cars off-road.
The new bullion form for gold, platinum and silver? is a 1099-B not a 1009-B as I stated in my last email. Yes, this is a real tax increase and was hidden in 2010 under the new health care reform.? Talk to your accountant in order to avoid fines and penalties.? A worst case nightmare would be a 1099-M form for meteorites.? Just kidding although it may be another way for the hogs at the feeding through to take another bite.

The new rule is missing a chromosome.? (to put it nicely)
But, if they are going to let this madness stand, then at least they
should distinguish between a fresh fall and old finds.? Perhaps an
exception can be made for the recovery of new falls?? If a new fall
happens over BLM land, the manager for that area could be informed and
he/she could waive the rule for that event.
Also, I agree with what some of the others here have already said.
All this will do is push meteorite hunting into the black market -
just like arrowheads and fossils.
Authority : "Do you have paperwork for that arrowhead/fossil?"
Finder : "No, it comes from an old collection back in the 1930's, it's
grandfathered in."? (wink)
