Happy birthday Stannern, exactly 210 years on Earth. It fell on May 22, 1808.

Pictures 1 and 2: Stannern end section 59.8 g, and small 98% complete individual 23.6 g. The end section is a museum trade (1995), the small individual is a collector trade (1993), former NHM Vienna collection specimen.

Picture 3: Close-up view of the polished face of the end section, about 8 x 6 mm.

Picture 4: Close-up view of the shiny black and glassy looking fusion crust. It looks like it fell yesterday.

Picture 5 and 6: Stannern thin section, cross-polarized filter pictures

Picture 7: The first page of the historic book "Beyträge zur Geschichte und Kenntniß meteorischer Stein= und Metall=Massen, und der Erscheinungen, welche deren Niederfallen zu begleiten pflegen.", D. Carl von Schreibers, 1820.

Picture 8: The historic sketch "Situations Plan" of the Stannern strewnfield, taken from the old book from D. Carl von Schreibers, 1820.

Fantastic pieces and documentation, jnmczurich! Perfect glossy fusion crust and the interior look like a yesterday*s fall.

That is a complete a collection of Stannern. A collector's dream to have not only the meteorite, the TS but also related ephemera as well. Congratulations!
