I guess in the future it would be wise to "consider the source" when someone
tells you they have a Lunar or Martian. Especially one that has not been
analyzed before it has been unannounced.
Unlike this one which is a real lunar, not yet cut or released for
Greg Hupe also had a REAL Lunar that he was displaying in Tucson, residing
for a time in Farmer's room.
