Campo del Cielo (IAB)

The first Campo del Cielo specimen was found in 1576. After hearing accounts from the native Indians of a mass falling from the heavens the Spanish governor of a province in Northern Argentina commissioned a search party to located the mass. The search party located a large iron mass. The Spanish governor wrote an account of the expedition and submitted the report in the Archivo General de Indias, located in Seville. At the time it was assumed that the mass was an iron mine but it was not until over 200 years later in the late 18th

    Does this Campo come with any certificate of authenticity and/or guarantee to be genuine besides your specimen card. The card is a good thing to place along display mounts. Your photos are very good. Thank you!
