Hello Michael & All,
All this time I thought it was supply and demand that made it go 'round.

> Hi Matt & all,

> HOWEVER, there are MANY killer rare types, not the least of which are
> 3s (H3s, L3s & LL3s) and, of course, many other rare types, including
> Lunars, Martians, etc. THESE are all of a great deal of interest to me.
> There is one other catacory that also holds a great deal of attracton

> To write off all the NWA and Sahara meteorites, wholsale, is, to me,
