campo del cielo coin - made from campo del cielo meteorite

This coin was sliced and stamped from a piece of Campo del Cielo meteorite and was then acid etched to bring out its widmanstatten bands. It is one of only 400 made. It is stamped with, 'Space Coin, Campo del Cielo, In the Skies We Trust' and has a very nice complete ridged edge and a clear Widmanstatten pattern. This pattern does not appear in terrestrial iron ores. Its presence is diagnostic for meteorites. Pattern variations are indicative of different subtypes.

On the obverse [see below] there is no serial number. Its rim, different from the later, serialized coin [230 made] in that it does not have a ridged edge. [ See later serialized coin here ]

Shock level is unknown. Weathering level is 2. TKW is >30 tons.
