Some more terrestrial breccia lacking any kind of fusion crust or
flight-markings being added to the huge pile being sold as lunar:


This demonstrates the need to have every piece tested and made official.
To me it is obvious this is not a lunar specimen but it is close enough
to fool many. Remember, a COA is worthless without official scientific
data to back it up. A recent national auction demonstrated that there
is simply no secondary market for undocumented, untested and unofficial

Material like this only undermines collector confidence which is at an
all time low right now because of the amount of undocumented crap being
dumped onto the market. Fake Martian material is making a comeback as well.
