An Apollo 17 moon rock missing for 30 years and believed to be worth up to $10 million has turned up in files belonging to Bill Clinton. The valuable rock was one of 50 presented to each state after the 1972 space mission.
NASA has found that since the rocks have been distributed, a very low percentage - which are encased in acrylic and mounted on a plaque along with the intended recipients flag - can actually be located.
The rock, believed to have a black market value of up to $10 million, had been missing since at least 1980 until an archivist found it in old gubernatorial papers.
Bobby Roberts, director of the Central Arkansas Library System, said the archivist opened a box previously archived as 'Arkansas flag plaque'.
The rock and a state flag were originally affixed to the plaque, but the rock had fallen off and the plaque had been misplaced.
'The moon rock, which is in a plastic container, had fallen off the plaque,' Mr Roberts told NBC. 'The archivist immediately knew what he had discovered.'

Is that what was in Sandy Burglar’s pants when he was being “sloppy”?
In Chelsea’s campaign chest.
This rock has probably been a benign looking paper weight on Hillary's - or Bill's - desk. Something that needed to 'out itself'; however; should a Campaign materialize with Clinton name on it.
Do wonder, what Michelle has her hands on, thus far. . .what is in her 'wish book'. Besides more diamonds, pearls and designer clothes. . .
If they are worth 10 million, couldn't we crank the Apollo program back up and start transporting some of these rocks to pay off the deficit? We might only need a ton or two.
Probably sandwiched in between some old porn magazines and some stale cigars.
hey boss, what do you think this is in the plastic? Shut up and put it in the box - who cares?
If Bill had been on the ball it could have been found at Maxie’s Pawn in down town LR!
The label said “Bill Clinton’s Kidney stone.”
Thanks for the reminder! That was as mature as the leftist media accusing Lazio of viciously attacking Hillary with a piece of paper at one of their debates.
