Realistically, the probability that an amateur will find a lunar meteorite is so low that I cannot raise much enthusiasm to examine the many rocks that I have been asked to examine.
If I wanted to find a lunar meteorite myself, I would not scour the Mojave Desert.
So assigning one impact age to those rocks might be an over simplification.

Moon rocks on Earth come from three sources: those collected by the US Apollo manned lunar landings from 1969 to 1972; samples returned by three Soviet Luna unmanned probes in the 1970s; and rocks that were ejected naturally from the lunar surface by cratering events and subsequently fell to Earth as lunar meteorites.
During the six Apollo landing missions, 2,415 samples weighing 380.96 kilograms (839.87 lb) were collected.
