Thanks for the continuing virtual tour of the National Museum John! Note this awesome depicted specimen of Peekskill is 738.8 g. Reputedly, Al Lang, Martin Cilz, and Ray Meyer purchased the original football sized stone together, of about 12 1/2 kg, for $78,000 with the car included, from the Knapps, beating out the scientists from the observatory that had begun earlier negotiations.
