This is a gorgeous example of a classic, door stop Canyon Diablo iron. It was purchased from The American Meteorite Laboratory, Denver, Co., on June 14th, 1966. With just a few hundred years less rusting it would have still had one of the classic wormholes that many of the largest masses display. The purchase price for this specimen #34.6046 in 1966 was $58.45. In 1966 I made $3.00 a day for 18 holes of golf as a caddy.
