Paul was in New York recently so I believe that these are all his pictures, and video. Great job, Paul! Thanks. And for those of you who did know that, MPOD is now 8 years old! Happy Birthday MPOD. Keep up the good work Paul.

One of my all-time favourite irons, and with a movie-worthy back story to match! I've also always been curious as to the degree of "shedding" of the mass(presumably onto the AMNH floor), given the appearance of oxidized shale on the market from time to time!

This is a meteorite you have to see in person. Like many I had seen the photos and read the description and history. My first 'visit' was simply awe-inspiring. And every 'visit' since has been a new take on an old friend...

Wow, a lovely looking iron with pretty granular pattern/texture. I am proud to have a small but nice partial slice of Willamette in my collection.
