Thanx for the comments. This specimen was acquired in March of 2001 was my third Ebay purchase ever, and it was sold by Eduardo Jawerbaum. I won with a $13.05 bid. :)

Wow, that second photo of crust is art that you could frame and hang on your wall.

Wonderful! Glossy, even irridescent bubbly fusion crust! Thanks for sharing, John!
