I make this point as much for the meteorite collecting
community as a whole. I want to contribute to the list
and any association that might pop up, and my
contributions would simply lean towards that which is
important to me. I see the "For real seal" as a good

have to do is show the buyer the same view, but if I
can do that, he doesn't have to trust me. As much.

The certificate may not be the answer. That is why I
am probing the list. What is wrong with the photo idea
if I am willing to pay a premium? That is, How might
it not serve the intended purpose?
