Hi Mike, list and all,
Mike, I feel your pain. Unfortunately, you had many investors from the past
that you had to give the NWA numbers to as well as us (i.e. 801...and other
We had a small, select group of a scientist and one individual with us
(along with two other investors stateside) who we had as researcher and
investor last year who were on an expedition to Morocco and we know where
all material is that we purchased, especially NWA 1877 (1110 from previous
unaided trip). Therefore, when people attempt to sell NWA 1877 and 1110, we
know the provenance of the tested material that we have and of our
investors, this is why we continue to harp on those not doing the right
thing and selling "supposed" pairings!
Bob, get a clue, your collectors/customers deserve better than second-guess
stones you pass off as meteorites, much less than planetary or rare (or
ordinary for that matter!). You are following a couple of the bad Moroccan
dealer's "habbit"s of offering bad material for simple, quick gain. Get
Best regards to all,

>> Hey Bob,
>> I thought everybody agreed to abide by the NomCom rules regarding the use
>> NWA numbers. What you have is not NWA 1110 or NWA 1877. Why don't you
>> statements such as:
>> I suspect my untested and unofficial material may be paired to NWA 1068
>> NWA 1877 because a Moroccan dealer named Habibi told me so.
>> I borrowed some of my descriptions against ebay rules from the Hupes
>> their consent.
>> I do not want to get into any more arguments because Jeff Grossman has
>> the rules clear regarding the use of NWA numbers. Most everybody else
>> changed their descriptions on websites, at shows and auctions to reflect
>> their newly found understanding of these rules.
>> Let this serve as a final warning and then I will post the names,
>> phone numbers and transgressions of anybody who improperly uses NWA
>> without paperwork of material we were responsible for making official on
>> legally protected website called 'TheMeteoriteSite.com", still under
>> construction. The lack of respect for NomCom rules only serves to
>> consumer confidence.
>> When bad checks were received at one of our retail stores we used to
>> it to the size of a poster and paste it on the storefront window so that
>> over a 100,000 motorists could view it every day as they passed by.
>> Needless to say, the writers of the bad checks paid up and
>> shoppers never tried to pass bad checks on us again.
