Thank you, glad you all like it, and I agree with John, yes an underrated meteorite. As for the 2 numbers, Bernd, when Oscar Monnig started to collect meteorites he numbered them, but when the collection got very large and Gary Huss was asked to organize it, he created a new, more systematic system, and that is why some TCU pieces have 2 numbers. To me it means that Oscar Monnig acquired it early in his career, and I like to think that maybe he picked it up during his first trip to Dimmitt, when he went there by train and met H.H. Nininger headed to the same place. But being gentlemen, they made an agreement to split everything they found equally. Even the main mass was split in 2, half of it going to TCU, and half eventually to ASU.

Dimmitt is a really nice looking chondrite. Both the individuals and the cut material are worthy for collecting. An underrated U.S. meteorite in my opinion.
