>> For a serious dealer it does not pays off on the long run to praise

>> Experienced collectors don't appreciate such exaggerations and the

>> Meteorite market is not Fish Market.
>> You don't get my point, Martin. It's not praising stinky Campos or
>> "boring" W4 desert H5's (BTW, the attitude that desert H5's are boring
>> is something I fully reject), it's about transporting the magic of
>> meteorites in your text, telling people more than just "I sell a Campo".
>> Give them background information, tell them that Campos tend to rust,
>> but tell them also the history of this find. Tell them how they can take
>> care of their pieces, and why even a "stinky Campo" is a piece of
>> extraterrestrial matter that is something special.
>> You don't have to exaggerate to sell. You just have to show that you
>> appreciate what you are selling.
