One dealer was offering Brenham, a well-known ruster with the
description, No artificial preservatives or coatings where used in its
preparation, like this was some kind of selling point. I think the
referenced examples of Sericho/Habaswein were not clear coated thus the
dull appearance.

The same claim was made for Seymchan and Brenham about the the supply
drying up yet 12 year later, there is still plenty on the market.

In the end, buyers determine the price, not dealers. This was proven by
undocumented lunar material being placed on the market with no dealer
added value whatsoever. Some well-known dealers, thinking more of their
own skills than that of research scientists, went as far as providing
COAs for material that they, themselves, had deemed to be lunar with no
laboratory input.
