Hi to everyone.
I've just joined, but I've had an interest in Iron Meteorites for about 25 years. I bought a copy of the excellent 3 volume handbook of Iron Meteories by Buchwald then, to help me on my university dissertation on the subject.
I've only recently started collecting meteorites, mostly irons. I have quite a few specimens, but I'm after bigger.
I've ordered from Spacerocksuk.com and I've got some good items. I've also ordered a few items from German dealers.
I'm thinking of ordering a large (5kg+) Campo del Cielo from jlacroix1 on eBay. Any thoughts or advice? I see he is an ICMA member.
Am I correct in thinking meteorites should be charged 5% VAT when imported from the US to the UK?
I hope my item doesn't get overcharged or delayed in customs.
The commodity code to use is 9705.00.0090 I think.
