No Larry,
There actually is a problem.
John's "opinion" is a common misconception that I even held until I personally learned of this recent trend.
This is a concern that others have shared with me, and has prompted me to write on this subject in three
separate articles, which essentially said, "Hey, here are some US chondrites that need to be classified."
Still haven't received any offers.

My request still stands.
I would like to hear from people with recent experience in this area that can point me in the direction of
a cheap classifier that still accepts small, ordinary chondrites.?
I suspect when I find one it will be outside the US.

 Hi John, List,
 You may be right about not having a problem getting a US chondrite classified, however,
 if it was found in the Mojave desert it is likely to get a number instead of a name.
 Unfortunately, Nom Com will likely lump it in with the nearest DCA,
 I'm wondering how much longer it will be before the entire Mojave desert is one big
 DCA like NWA?

 I'd love to see a photo also, but I live in Philadelphia so I won't be
 seeingthis in person. :-)?That aside,I'm assuming from
 your post that this is a"chondrite" native to the
 USA, and not just another NWA.?I have about 25
 NWA'sundergoing classification now, and I have more
 I'd like to get classified but itis indeed hard to find
 a lab that will work on NWAs that look like obvious OCs.?I
 think that is a mistake on their part, because there are so
 many uniquethings to be found in meteorites. ?
 In my opinion, many labs would thinkdifferently about a
 "native" US chondrite, than an NWA chondrite. ?I
 do notthink you will have trouble finding a home for it if
 it is a USA find.??Cheers,John?
