Reproduction Information Report on index accession card, "5-5-88 Ron Sack says obvious forgery." (BW) Sample taken by Ralph Roulett of the Thermoluminessence Lab at University of Missouri, Columbia. Since this item was fired at UIUC on 5/12/80, TL results will show modern firing. Another piece identified by Sack as a reproduction was verified as genuine, so further research is required to determine whether this piece is original or reproduction.
