The recovery of Burns is described in its Meteoritical Bulletin write-up:

Of note; our purchasing the meteorite allowed it to remain intact.  A few meteorite dealers were angling to slice the iron.  Given the iron’s spectacular shape and character, we are very thankful to Anne Black for allowing us to purchase the iron in its entirety.
