I have a Bessey Speck (about .001g) of Lafayette acquired several years ago, for the unheard of price of under $100; somewhere in my records I have the original receipt and COA. It is one of my rarities, and I'm pleased I got it, although at the time I had no idea it was so difficult to come by! I also got a lentil sized piece of Honolulu for about $300 around the same time; this one actually came back to its fall origin from Europe!
