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.
