Very poor records were kept at the time of this fall. A massive search of the strewn field recently let to the recovery of two specimens, on of about 1 kilogram in weight and another of about 330 grams. The former was sliced and sold to the meteorite collector market. I acquired the latter which, after cleaning the 75 years of terrestrial experience, now weighs 328 grams. This is the only remaining complete individual from this fall, to my knowledge.
