Glad you all like it. A "special bag" Graham? No, not really, it is an ordinary chondrite, but a nice one with a pedigree, just like I like them.

Nininger took pride in getting the last word im post-mortum over G. Merrill, who dissuaded Nininger from systematically searching lands for meteorites in hopes of finding them, and stating they were much more common that scientists thought. Gladstone was the result at the beginning of Nininger's "meteorite survey" financed on a shoestring budget. A 100 pound stone was found by an astute farmer "who had the privilege of seeing" Nininger's specially designed field exhibit on recognizing meteorites.
