I don't have any more information on this meteorite than is listed in the bulletin, so without further ado -

This specimen was purchased from a reputable Canadian collector, and comes with a label of unknown provenance (pictured below).  It is a rather typical, moderately weathered H-chondrite exhibiting a chocolate brown matrix and abundant metal flakes.  This thick slab has about 45% weathered crust along its rim; the other ~ half is what appears to be an older natural (?) break. 
It weighs 125.857 grams.  Honestly, it could do with a refinishing job (it's currently as I purchased it).  But, I had an idea.  Instead of just refinishing it and raising the price accordingly, I can provide the buyer with an option --
1) Purchase it as-is for $2.50/g. 
2) I can have it refinished at cost and add the balance to the price.  Please note that the weight may decrease by a gram or so. 
I'd conservatively say the total would come to around $375 = $3/g. 

$3/g is as cheap as I could find it anywhere else online, so either way would be a fair price. 

It's a hefty slab of this North American meteorite - definitely more of an old-school specimen in size/proportion. 
$2.50/g as-is = $315
estimated $375 refinished
