Thanks for sharing the pic.
Are you sure it is 869? Unless my memory is going, or the pic was photoshopped, black crust is not an 869 trait. I remember 869 having a weathered brownish varnish with no real aspect one would describe as fresh.
Does the internal nature of your pictured piece match other 869 in your inventory? Maybe a polish is in order on the internal side of this specimen.
That crust looks somewhat calcium-rich eucrite-ish if you ask me. What does it do around a magnet?
