Staking my claim to lunar real estate

On April 27, 1972, when I was in high school, I purchased from Lunar Services Corporation of Alexandria, Virginia, a deed to a small portion of lunar real estate near the crater Agrippa, for the grand total of $5.00. The purchase was documented with the quitclaim deed shown in this post, as well as several lunar maps.

I would have been surprised in 1972 to hear that it may be 50 years before anyone goes back to the Moon. I guess my chances of putting my own feet on "my property" are pretty slim. I'm especially upset that Lunar Services Corporation is apparently no longer around to help me assert my claim!
