    Lake Metal Detecting Strange Find

    So after listening to my eldest son trying to understand why I spent over $1000 in my Tesoro's I made him to go with me to the lake in Big Spring Tx for some swings about an hr drive from where we live. Once there I showed him the little I've learned and gave him my Vaquero, Garrett Lesche, and Pinpointer while I swung my Lobo Supertraq, we were there in a little sandy area bunch of pull tabs and bottle caps were found along with your common fishing weights and some clad. My son was a bit disappointed with all the trash he was pulling out a cpl inches buried until he got a hit that took him a good 10 inches to recover the target, it was no pull tab or bottle cap or any regular trash, it's some kind of metallic rock, he got more excited when I told him in my "professional" experience that it was probably a meteorite....lmao...he asked me "You're serious?", that MD bug got into him and wants to buy my Vaquero..... Anyway we had fun and really dont know what his find is. It still hits having disc to the max, here's a cpl pics and any help on the "meteorite" its appreciated.

    Some things to consider,

    Is your meteorite "overly" heavy for the size?
    Is it attracted to a Magnet (some are not)".
    Flow lines?
    Any thumb prints...pea shaped "craters" on the surface...yours may have these by the photos.

    Good Luck on the identification!
