On April 30, 2011 ~6am local time, a 1 kilogram meteorite fell through the roof and eaves of a building owned by Mrs. Alfreda Lewandowska in the village of Soltmany in Poland.

The 497g main mass.

It is the 21st meteorite from Poland and has been classified as an L6.  Since the main mass (and the below fragments) were recovered the same day of the fall, they exhibit little to no weathering or oxidation. 
Per the below paper, the tkw has been estimated to be roughly 1066g.

From the collecting standpoint, as far as I know, next to none of this meteorite has made it out of Poland.  I can honestly say that I know of no other person currently offering any of it for sale.  It's a European fall, a single stone, a hammer, and there's precious little to go around.  A friend was kind enough to pass a few grams (literally) along, and it wasn't cheap. 
He visited the find site about a week after the fall and purchased these from the finder.  These are fragments that directly resulted from the impact of the main mass with the
brick and cement pavement pictured above. 

Each specimen will come in an airtight vial with a Utas Collection label.  I can also email or include a CD with full-resoluton copies of the copyrighted photos taken by Thomasz Jakubowski of the find site.  (See above.)
