I bought an interesting collection while I was in Tucson. Most of the
pieces were purchased from mineral dealers in the 70-s to 90s or so.
Of course they are mostly common localities but there are a couple of
interesting ones as well.
Odessa 3 piece with an old Bob Haag label $25.00
Lake Murray Shale 135 g Has old label with #396 attached to it. $25.00
Canyon Diablo Shale 2 packages Package 1 = 3.1 and 0.3 g fragments
David Shannon Minerals label. Package 2 = 9.0 g cut fragment from The
Thurstons Boylston MA plus another unmarked label dated Nov 1966.
Canyon Diablo Iron 15.4 g no label $5.00
Canyon Diablo Iron 39.1 g unmarked label but mentions Wards Natural
Sciences. Numbered label almost certainly matches numbered specimen.
It is very faint. $20.00
Canyon Diablo Iron 51.5 g David Shannon Minerals label. $25.00
Canyon Diablo Iron 36.0 g David Shannon Minerals label. Very rusty,
needs to be cleaned up and retched. $15.00

Gibeon Iron 68.3 g Planet Earth Label. $70.00
Dalgety Downs Stone L4 Australia. 31.9 g Donald Cook, Rochester NY and
William Pinch Rochester NY $160.00
Springer Stone H5 93.0 g OK No marked labels but from the CE Hannum
estate. He purchased the main mass from the original finder. $279.00
Gove Relict Iron. Classified but not officially approved. 2.85 gram
fragment (Make an offer)
Imilac 8.61 grams. Cool old "pill Box" container from famous London
Mineral dealer Gregory, Bottley and Co. Not for sale just wanted to
let everyone have a look. Label dates from between 1931 and 1981. I'm
guessing from closer to 1931 than 1981.
