Lamesa (b) (L5)

In 1985, after a particularly hard rain, a farmer found a large rock in a ditch near Lamesa, Texas. For the next 20 years, he used the rock as a bookend. Then in 2005, the rock was finally recognized for what it actually is—a chondrite L5. The Lamesa meteorite has a total known weight of 1.44 kg.

    I don’t see a Lamesa(b)or(a) in IMCA or MetBul. The “Lamesa” that is listed is an Iron.
    Can you help me understand what you have here?

      Lamesa(b) was provisional. It should be in the MetBul by now, but isn’t. Submitted via Ted Bunch at NAU.
