Just like Martians were a few years ago when the self-pairing and
piggy-backing reached an all time high at around 2012/NWA 7000. And
before that, it was falls when some less than honest dealers were
substituting NWA material in place of the real thing. I remember
Claxton, which I acquired from Michael Blood later selling for less than
a $100.00 gram due to a lack in collector confidence.
No meteorite is immune from less than honest business practices. Many
collectors will not touch anything that post dates 2012 and are very
leery of falls.
On the bright side. There is no better time to purchase genuine lunar
material with good provenance and laboratory confirmation since the
price is sure to go up just like the Martians that were dumped a few
