The only provenance I can offer on these lots is that they were purchased by my wife,
Zann at a Rotary rummage sale here in Laughlin, NV over two years ago. It is my
belief that this entire assemblage came from the George R. Frerich, Jr. collection (of
Hollywood, California) since he stamped a good portion of this material with his name
or the correspondence was addressed to him.
...........The Aquarius Hotel here in Laughlin used to host the world’s largest international
UFO conventions up until a few years ago. This material might somehow be related to
these massive gatherings of UFO enthusiasts. I made the mistake of referring to this
collection as entertainment material when discussing it with locals and was given some
cold stares. It seems half the people in these parts believe in extraterrestrial visitations
and take the subject very seriously. Many can give first hand accounts of encounters like
the Needles, CA, UFO crash 20 miles down the road. Then there was the case of Bob White’s
Alien Quasi Crystal artifact which was exposed to x-ray film by a local dentist who openly
discusses it, caused three hotel safes to malfunction during a local convention and was later
confirmed by Sandia National Laboratory as being extraterrestrial.
In addition, Nevada named a stretch of pavement the “Extraterrestrial Highway” and is home
to “Area 51.”
......... All this being said, UFOlogy related items are now considered highly collectable,
especially material dating from the 1950’s and 60’s. I have continually loaned out parts of
this collection ever since this small town heard of the acquisition. Most locals have no
problem whatsoever believing that the physical evidence items in this collection are real
while they used to question me about the validity of owning an actual rock from the Moon.
Go figure? (Written by the conignor of lots AH 1 through 12)

Lot 27 AH #1 (Adam Hupe)
184 page publication titled “THE UFO EVIDENCE (UNIDENTIFIED
FLYING OBJECTS)” published by The National Investigations Committee On Aerial
Phenomena (NICAP) Washington D.C., 1964. Very interesting and entertaining reading.
This publication is loaded with letters, drawings, witness statements and investigative
reports.
The National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena (or NICAP)
was a first-class civilian Unidentified Flying Object research group active in the United
States from the 1950s to the 1980s.
........... Most researchers agree that NICAP was more thorough in their investigations
than their governmental counterpart, “PROJECT BLUEBOOK.” The NICAP was
very serious about the subject - their material inspired many of the episodes on the popular
show, ”X-Files.” The organization was all but paralyzed by in-fighting that lead to their
demise, including unsubstantiated charges that the Central Intelligence Agency had infiltrated
NICAP. In fact, several persons with CIA ties had joined NICAP; however, their motives
and reasons for joining NICAP have been the subject of some debate.

Physical Evidence (3) & Art Work
Click on any photo to Enlarge
Original artwork sketched in pencil (I assume a witness drawing) of flying saucer attacking campsite
in San Bernardino, CA dated July 2, 1969 and initialed D.T. Notes on back read in all capital letters
“SPINNING OBJECT, EMITTED NOXIOUS FUMES AND BLACK DEBRIS, HOVERED, CHANGED
DIRECTIONS AND CAME BACK. THREE CAMPERS BURNED BY DEBRIS”, ”POTENTALLY
STRONG PHSYICAL EVIDENCE”, RATING (*), (#) and finally three names “STEVE BOYCE,
DUSTIN TAYLOR, CINDY GREEN.” Potentially was misspelled. In the Manilla envelope, there was
also a letter from the Director of NICAP to Mr. George R. Frerich, Jr. welcoming him as a new
member dated November 4, 1957. The letter is in pretty rough shape and was torn so I repaired
it from the back with tape. Last but not least, the envelope contains three melted black objects with
what looks like quartz pebbles and dirt clinging to the bottom of them. These samples, which are
presumably debris from the incident are hard, not very dense and look brittle. They appear to have
been molten when hitting the ground accounting for the debris stuck to the underside of them.
......... I showed this sketch to some locals at a barbecue and was joking that it looked like it was drawn
by a grade school student and made the mistake of laughing about it. After viewing the image, one girl
went silent, recomposed herself and then commented ‘Those poor people, they must of been scared out
of their frickin minds!” and then added “how would you like it if you were minding your own business,
a flying saucer woke you up and started burning you with black crap?” She further interpreted it as
being obvious that the poor woman in the center of the sketch was frozen in fear while the two men hid,
which she felt was typical human behavior in a crisis. I later found out that she claims to have witnessed
a UFO firsthand and doesn’t find it humorous.
........ This lot contains the following in manilla envelope: * Original sketch of flying saucer with notes on
back * NICAP letter dated 1957
* Sample #1, 7.9 grams, 33mm X 25mm X 10mm, Contraction cracks
* Sample #2, 29.2 grams, 62mm X 40mm X 20mm, Glass-like luster
* Sample #3, 46.6 grams, 65mm X 55mm X 11mm, Vesicles

METAL Brownish silver oval metal looking object Weight: 27.5 grams
Dimensions: 26mm by 20mm X 19mm Comments: Non-magnetic, extremely dense, metallic looking specimen
with cubic shaped crystals. According to one self-proclaimed expert that I talked to at the Post Office, this is
an ultra-rare Quasi Crystal that was manufactured and is not natural. Another so-called expert is sure that it
is iridium. Personally, I have no opinion other than I really like this specimen regardless of what it might be.
It feels good in the hand, like holding a large gold nugget. It is three times as dense as lot #11 which has similar dimensions.

PHYSICAL EVIDENCE – AURORA, TEXAS
Click on any photo to Enlarge
METAL Silver colored metal object Weight: 104.7 grams Dimensions: 62mm by 45mm X 20mm
Comments: It appears to be weathered aluminum to me but maybe a little denser. It is almost humanoid in
shape and is not attracted to a magnet. Has a few pebbles stuck to the bottom like it was molten when it hit
the ground. It looks like it incidentally made a casting of debris underneath it when it solidified. This may be
from the famous April 17, 1897 incident if online references are any indication. According to reports, a cigar
shaped UFO crashed into a windmill in Aurora, Texas and exploded, spewing liquefied hot metal all over
Judge J.S. Proctor’s property. The metal was later thrown down a well on the same property and forgotten
about until the early 1970’s.

Lot 37 AH #11 PHYSICAL EVIDENCE – PASADENA, CALIFORNIA
Click on any photo to Enlarge
UNKNOWN Extremely odd looking hard black pouch surrounding a brick colored stone
Weight: 8.5 grams Dimensions: 28mm by 19mm X 17mm
Comments: In my opinion, this is the most alien looking object in the bunch. I have never observed anything
that remotely resembles it! It is difficult to describe but I will try. It appears that some kind hard mineral-bearing
sack made of ~1mm thick black stone has encased ~90% of a vesiculated brick colored pebble. There are even
stretch marks were it cinched itself around the host stone. According to a local UFO buff, some beam-ships, as
he calls them, emit a black substance, surround objects with it and then retrieve them. He went on to say that it is extremely rare for a saucer to leave physical evidence behind like this unless they wanted it to be found. It reminds
me of something you would see on some old Outer Limits or Twilight Zone episode. I don’t know what this thing is
but it is pretty creepy looking!

METEORITE Weathered Iron meteorite with ground off window Weight: 3.2 grams
Dimensions: 15mm X 9mm X 6mm Comments: This looks like a genuine meteorite to me. Why he chose to display
it with UFO samples and label it as a meteorite is a mystery to me. I have no provenance other than what was
printed on the label while it was framed so cannot say it is part of the Tucson Ring. The previous collector may
have simply purchased a meteorite in Tucson and labeled the display accordingly. On the other hand, it may be
a genuine piece of the Tucson Ring! If I look at it hard enough, I can almost see the inclusions unique to this
famous meteorite or it could be wishful thinking. I will let you be the judge.

Lot 39 AH #13
Pre-columbian head with helmet similar to those shown in Chariots of the Gods and
which accompany other paleo alien theories. NOTE: Lots #13 & #14 are NOT part
of the George R. Frerich, Jr. collection (Lots AH#1 through #12)
73mm X 48mm X 17mm Comments:
Authentic Pre-Columbian Mayan Artifact pulled from ancient ruins in Jatate Mexico.
This borders Guatemala where the most famous of all this type of artifact was found.
The traditional view is that these idols were images of deities and gods. According to
Ancient Astronaut Theorists, these artifacts were made by the sky people to depict ancient
astronauts which the Mayans mistook for gods. This ancient relic could be interpreted
as an astronaut in an inflated space suite, wearing a helmet with his arms folded in front
of him working some dials with his hands. Although not as intricate as the one popularized
in books and in the media, this pottery figure is complete, has great patina and will "paper"
(be authenticated) by any reputable authenticator in the business.
Similar to the famous one depicted in the “Chariots of the Gods”, valued at U.S.

*************************************************************************

ABSENTEE BIDS: One of the following are required
to place an absentee bid:

Visa or Mastercard number, expiration date & secyrity code on file OR a
pledge to make immediate
payment from a PayPal account with a current
balance sufficient to cover all bids you wish to place.

Fee for absentee bids is 10% (above the buyers' premium of 10%- only if
you win the bid, of course {total = 20%}) + actual shipping costs, including
membrane boxes if protection of the piece(s) is.are needed.

Your maximum bid will NOT be placed, but rather bid up one increment
at a time in r
esponse to live bidding at the auction. In other words, you will
get the item at the
lowest bid possible (similar to eBay). (On no minimum
items, I generally start the bidding at 1/3rd to 1/2 the price I estimate at will
be the hammer price). This gives you
the same advantage as being there.
You may phone or email your bids to me. Be sure you receive an email
response from
me confirming your bid(s). (Emails sometimes get "lost").
No absentee bids will be received via email after I leave for the show!

LOCATION: VFW Post #4903 at 1150 N. Beverly (1 block
north of Speedway and 2 blocks west of Craycroft. pull into the ample
VFW parking lot at 1150 N. Beverly Ave.


-------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
--------------------------------------------
FROM THE FWY:
1) Take the FWY to Speedway Exit
2) Take Speedway east 5 miles - go a few blocks past Swan to N Beverly
3) Turn Left on N. Beverly and go one block to 1150 N. Beverly Ave.

4) If you get to Craycroft, YOU HAVE GONE TOO FAR - go back 2 blocks!

FROM INN SUITES:

1)- Turn L. Leaving Inn Suites parking lot onto Granada
going “north” - (away from “Downtown”)

2) Turn Right onto Speedway and go 5 miles - go a few blocks past Swan to N Beverly Ave.
3) Turn Left onto N. Beverly Ave. and go 1 block to the VFW parking lot.
4) If you get to Craycroft, YOU HAVE GONE TOO FAR - go back 2 blocks!

Tucson is laid out such that Broadway, Speedway and Grand all run
parallel on another and are the main arteries roughly East and West,
while many main arteries run roughly North/South, such as Swan and
Craycroft
.


This VFW post has plenty of parking and a no host full bar. So, be prepared to see
a LOT of specimens & meet lots of people face to face. EVERYONE is invited to
attend, bid and/or sell.
There will be micromounts, macromounts, small specimens, part slices, whole
slices, whole specimens, huge/multi-kilo specimens & RARE thin sections.
All are welcome to enter specimens, whether you are a dealer or modest collector

wanting to sell (a) specimen(s) which is/are now upgraded in your collection.
This is NOT an event just for dealers - so, please feel free to submit any item(s).
However, when the list goes over 100, I will begin to pick and choose even more
closely among items offered as to which will be best to include in the auction.

PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO NO MINIMUM/NO RESERVE ITEMS
and to ITEMS OF HIGHEST QUALITY.

This promises to be a FUN time & everyone is invited to sell, buy or just enjoy the
festivities & to go to a late dinner afterwards. This is an opportune time for many of
us on the list who know one another only via e-mails to meet face to face & get to
spend some fun time together. (If you buy some stuff at the show - bring it to the
auction & at the dinner afterwards we can all Show & Tell - one of the more fun
aspects of collecting, in my book).

Most auctions now customarily charge buyers a 15% or 25% "buyers' premium"
which is added on to the winning bid price. Even for this auction, expenses have
increased to the point I must charge a minimal buyers premium of 10%. I have
kept this as low as possible to minimize the pinch felt by the buyers, yet allow me
to continue to hold this event in the face of a 1,000% increase in expenses.

ABSENTEE BIDDING: Email me your lots and highest bid. Bids will be made
for you based on live bidding until your limit is reached on a given lot (Similar
to eBay. Immediate payment required via credit card or PayPal is required when
contacted a day or two after the auction (NO CHECKS). 19% will cover buyers'
premium, card or PayPal payment and absentee bidding process. Shipping will be
added to your purchase.

Visa / Mastercard payment requires a 4% processing fee.


I only require 3 things:
1) I ask that everyone just buying arrive between 5:30 & 7:00 to pre-register

to get a bid number & examine specimens that will be offered (& take advantage
to meet “old friends” you only know by e-mail address! and "have a cold one" if
you so choose - or, in Rob's case, a warm one.

2)
I am limiting the auction to 125 lots. So, if you plan to submit your item AT the
auction, the better the specimen and the earlier you arrive to register, the more sure
you can be of getting your piece(s) in the auction – and an early arrival
allows you
to take a close look
at the material available.

3) The VFW has a full bar on site. However, please drink responsibly and have a
designated driver.



I will be accepting absentee bids
prior to the auction. I will be accepting Visa and Mastercard payments for .

said absentee bids. There will be a 5% processing fee for use of Visa, Mastercard or PayPal.
+5% for the absentee bid + actual shipping cost and any safety containers required for same.

- At the auction, personal checks and cash are accepted.

(For purchases made with Visa/Mastercard,
there will be a 4% processing fee charged).


It is my intention to retain the open atmosphere which has characterized
my auctions since the beginning, being and have a fun social atmosphere which, I feel,
provides a real service to the meteorite community. From low to high quality
specimens for sale to the more discriminating collector and opportunities for dealers to
make major purchases and sales, as well.

This year's auction promises to be the best to date!

(If you would like to put an exceptional specimen on consignment, please contact me at mlblood@cox.net for a full description of terms and conditions)
