The Meteoritical Bulletin offered scant information on the find, but I was able to find a paper by Art Ehlmann and Klaus Keil that described the meteorite in some detail.


This partial slice comes from the Monnig collection and comes with their original label -- but it does not bear a painted collection number.  It still makes for quite a nice display.
54.787 gram quarter-slice - $500 (on hold)

The weight on the Monnig label isn't quite right; I weighed the slice on a recently calibrated scale and it came to 54.787 grams. 
Thanks to the fact that this meteorite experienced a reasonable degree of shock in space, it is very solid and its interior has not weathered much.  This slice is an attractive piece of an American find with a low total known weight and institutional provenance.  This is the largest piece of Pony Creek I've seen available, but pieces of any size are hard to come by.
$500 (on hold)
