    What an amazing find! Really, who doesn't want to find something amazing like this, among the nerd fraternity/sorority at least. I would brag on by deathbed! :biggrin:

    Wow, that's kind of amazing, but I'm not sure that I would be able to resist donating it to a lab that wanted it. If it's a museum, they can pay. :biggrin:
