Yes, Anne is right re: Dieter Heinlein. I once had a 4-gram piece of Silao from Dieter (purchased from Dieter in 2000) but traded it for two NWAs.

Yes Matthias, the Rockies in miniature, and frankly, I had never heard of it either. That's the nice thing about Shows, you discover things there! And Michael, it came with cards from Dieter Heinlein, the Tony Stuedi Collection, and Marc Jost.

I must confess that I hear first time from the Silao fall. A mountain-chain en miniature - how nice!
