Results are presented for petrographic and chemical analyses of the stony meteorites Kukshin (fell June 11, 1938) and Bakhmut (fell February 25, 1814). Both meteorites are found to be olivine-hypersthene chondrites; i.e., to belong to group L6. The results indicate that the metallic-iron content and composition are nearly identical, and the amounts of total iron and troilite are similar, in the two meteorites.
