Hi Rodrigo,

Well, let's see:

Lucerne: L6, LL4, H6, H4, L6, H6, L5, LL6, L6 and one
ordinary chondrite (type not determined). 3 H's, 4 L's
and 2 LL's. A pretty good spread.

Roach: H5, LL6, L5, L6

Other undisclosed locations also seem to have a good mix
of L's and H's. Time may indeed favor the L's survival
over the H's in some locations, but so far the finds in
the desert southwest don't show an obvious trend of L's
over H's.
