    • I like the way you presented your theory and good pictures to go with it. The area we spoke about having a steep face 90 degree zone does look similar to a roll over lip. Roll over lip referrers to the shape that can form while the meteorite is traveling through the atmosphere. The thing about the idea of your iron being a piece inside of a larger body of iron, is that it should still have the Widdy pattern. I do know someone in the department at Wisconsin, she is good geologist that we know, i will see if she saw your suspect. Bottom line in my opinion is you have a good example of what a meteorite can look like, but just not quite there. I have found a few pieces i thought were for sure the real deal, but you can't argue with science, at least i don't. Here's a sample of my iron meteor wrongs. 
    • What if they were looting and burning down buildings in YOUR neighborhood? What would you want the police to do? Stand there and watch?

    • After some review and learning more about what makes a Meteorite, I think I have a explaination for the plan or non-conforming characteristics.  It goes something like this... 1.  The piece I found is the center or middle section of a somewhat larger meteorite.  Most of the top and bottom are missing and I am left with the burger patty of a once hole hamburger meteorite.  I pursume these broke off early into it's flight with earth's atmosphere.  This center peice became bent when reaching the surface and now supports a slight twist like a thin 8. Supporting attributes: A.  The outside rim supports numerious regmaglypts (Figure A.1 | A.2 | A.3 | A.4)                                                                                            Figure A.1                                                                                                Figure A.2                                                         Figure A.3                                                     Figure A.4   B.  Flows.  There are a number of flows along the rough edge which would supprt breaking up of the piece before impact (Figure B.1 | B.2 | B.3 | B.4 | B.5)  and could explain the 90 degree shelf alone one side.                                                                                              Figure B.1                                                                              Figure B.2                                  Figure B.3                    Figure B.4 (Close up of B.1)                                     Figure B.5
