The Udie Station is a nice looking specimen.
I need to get on the stick and start adding to my collection.

Very nice sample. So many Campos today are black. I prefer the ones that look a more natural brown.

I think the Campos that are distinctly black were probably treated with a rust inhibiting coating. Even ordinary lacquer will darken up a natural brown one. If yours starts to acquire new rust, or starts to flake, or begins to exude little yellow-green globules, you should treat it according to one of the previously described processes. The appearance will be essentially unchanged, but the chlorine that's accelerating the rusting will be removed. Your piece does have a nice shape with great regmaglypts. Here's a 12 kg individual that used to be a prolific ruster, with copious amounts of yellowish liquid constantly forming on the surface, and flakes of rust a constant source of annoyance. It's been about five years since treatment, and there's never been a reoccurance of new rust or 'lawrencite disease'.

Is the seller of the broken one giving you another or did you just buy another.
