13 grams.   Iron, IIAB

TKW 23 MT. Observed fall February 12, 1947.


Jansen writes:
A small flight marked, Sikhote-Alin "bullet", hybrid iron, individual. One of the most interesting meteorites in my collection. It is both shrapnel and individual, having a small bit sheared off by another object at the time of the fall. A small rollover lip runs out over the smoothed surface into very defined flow lines. Diagram shows the features where my camera could not get a good picture.
