A mass of 2300 g was found in a cattle field by E. F. Bohman in the spring of 1942. In the autumn of 1941 a bright fireball had been observed in the area. This meteorite is unrelated to this event, because it is heavily weathered. Classification, analysis and research material, olivine Fa23.4, Charles F.
