Staunton has - so called - "swollen" (plump) kamacite bars, Augusta County has straight kamacite bars like to see in the photograph.

Thank you Bernd, thank you Jurgen. It came with a label with the name "Dr. Peter Gottschling". Would you know who that is? Thanks.

Thanks again Bernd. So when it comes to these looking/purchasing these two meteorites...know what to look for between IIIAB and IIIE irons. The photos for the two meteorites in the METbul shows the difference notably. this one, Augusta County, is a IIIAB.

Catalogue of Meteorites, Fifth Edition, p. 83: The 69 kg and 7 kg masses previously assigned to the Staunton find differ significantly from the other Staunton masses, which are coarse octahedrites of group IIIE. It was therefore proposed that the two masses be renamed Augusta County.
