This iron meteorite was found 6 miles northwest of Hugo, Oklahoma, and was first described by E. C. Wood and C. A. Merrith.1 It was correctly identified as belonging to the ataxite group with an unusually high schreibersite content. The U. S. National Museum acquired a 1317 gram sample of this iron from the authors shortly after the description appeared. This meteorite was restudied because the analysis first reported did not agree with the series of accepted analyses now being compiled for other low nickel ataxites.
