This specimen is what I would call a classic and a 'wowser!" Sorry that the 'wowser' is not very scientific. When I first looked the the images I thought and even said 'wow!' Thanks for sharing this 'wowser' with us, Michael!

Rare you see a Dronino that hasn't been cut and polished. Very nice! Isn't Dronino an ataxite, though?

Best meteorite hunter last name ever?

Right, Zelimir, and, according to Met.Bull. 88, the distribution of these fragments suggests the meteorite formed a now-buried crater about 30 m in diameter.

The first 40 kg iron was found in 2000 and it could have been considered as the tkw at the time. However in summer 2003, scientific expeditions and meteorite hunters collected more than 600 other fragments (the largest weighing 250 kg) totaling ~3000 kg (see MetBull, data). The tkw should now be probably over 3040 kg...
