Hello list members.
I write with a memory of discussions about a meteorite
First of all, it seems to me that perusing the
meteorite central page one day, I happended upon a
meteorite association of sorts. Why I didn't mark the
page is completely beyond me. I wonder what that group
is lacking that necessitates another. Of course, to
get much of a response on this issue, someone must
have some idea of the page to which I refer.
Regardless, there still exists the matter of my second
Specs. It's the moon, huh! Well, I'm gullable, and
besides, I trust my sources completely. Still, I'd
like to know something. Did the original owner of
DaG262 or 400 or the new Dhofars or Calcalong provide
any paperwork to the original buyer authenticating
this material? If so, at what point down the line to
me did it become unnecessary to do so? That is besides
the card and handout that I could have typed myself.
Don't get me wrong. I can see this coming across
harshly. I am actually a very happy camper.
I am just trying to make a point. One that I brought
up some time ago. Since I probably got a very
respectable answer, I won't ask anyone to answer my
second question, but, besides the recent promise to
purchase a spec which I am happy to buy without
authentication of the identification it will bare, I
don't think I'll be buying anymore specs without some
kind of authentication.
This is not some kind of soap box I'm on. I will offer
a slight premium, should I want a spec, for a photo of
the specimen with a signature from the seller. In this
way, I can show the person who wants to buy the spec
from me, that it is the same spec that I bought,
thereby allowing the buyer to trust the person who
sold me the spec rather than having to trust me.
I am interested to know what anyone out there thinks
of this idea. Not an answer like, "That is your
perogative." for I already know that.
Thank you very much for your time list members. I hope
this didn't seem like an unduly long message. It is
important to me.
