I was resolved to leave that in there until somebody noticed. It has
been at least 3-4 years. It does date to when I was testing some new
programming, and I just let it go to see what happened. Nobody has ever
said anything. Can you guess what meteorite links to it?

On the serious side, any private collectors or dealers who currently
have a listing in metbull, or who want one, can contact me for a link
where you can enter more detailed contact info, like Adam has already
done. The requirement for new entries is that one or more meteorites
list you as the holder of the main mass or as finder, or refer to you in
the write-up.

Here is the one Adam already filled out:

I was fortunate enough to be asked to help test drive this new feature. My only input was making it hard for spambots to get a hold of email addresses which Jeff took care of. I feel this will be a good feature since private collectors can collaborate with institutional entities.
