The "Taborg," or "Tabory" meteorite fell on August 30th, 1887 at approximately 12:40pm local time.  Approximately 500 kilograms of material were recovered at the time, as individuals and fragments, but very few individuals have since made their way into private hands.  Later named "Ochansk" (sometime after 1895), it was curated entirely by museums until private trading brought some pieces to the collectors' sphere in the past few decades.1  Please see the link below if you're curious to see a fully digital copy of Farrington's 1895 catalogue. 

The fragment being offered is a 51.5 gram interior fragment that looks as though it fell a few minutes ago.  There are only the smallest traces of rust on it, and it displays a fine brecciation of ligher clasts in a slightly darker, shocked matrix.  It's a beautiful, large, and very fresh fragment of this hard-to-come-by meteorite. 
~$15/g, $750






Great-looking, fresh breccia, as you can see.  Doesn't get much nicer than that. 
Again, 51.5 grams, $750.
