I saw this as a headline on CNN homepage
It even had billing over Elon Musk and Kavanaugh when I saw it.

After reading the report on its being excavated in 1930 or thereabouts from
a crater after a loud crash and being warm to the touch etc.
I had to laugh!
Now if you had collected a freshly fallen Siderite moments after impact
would it look like it has been weathered for 10,000 years !
No it wouldn't

I have no doubt about its authenticity but the story is far fetched
