Finally have some good news to report. Some fellow meteorite-hunters have contacted me to report that they have recovered a 255kg iron from the Sahara Desert in Algeria. This was well before April Fools Day, and the photos of it in-situ and "oiled-up" are very convincing. I immediately put them in contact with an officially-approved institution here in USA for classification. Apparently, they declined to cut this wonderful-looking and huge mass of iron (and no smaller masses have been found), until after they have a confirmed buyer.

The finders have already received a number of offers, but nearly all were bogus. That's why they came to me to help them with filtering-out the scammers. So, when I say that I will only forward "serious offers", I'm serious. And, this is the limit of my involvement with this find. That, and helping to get this iron classified and made "official".
You can see some of those photos here:
If seriously interested, please contact me off-List.
Thank you for your time, and I hope you enjoy the photos,
