Right. All that wind and water erosion on the Moon...
The only way to conclusively put this debate to a rest so that supporters and non proponents of the shard concede the truth an answer one way or the other is too agree upon the coordinate position of the Shard and then ask Nasa for the high resolution pictures of the region around the coordinate.
According to the link that nobody checked, the coordinates are Central Latitude/Longitude (deg): +0.80/358.96.
We both know that's not going to happen. The 'shard,' in all probability, doesn't exist and imagery would only be doubted by people who have their hearts set upon an alien structure being denied by all the space agencies of Earth.

It appears to me the answer to the shard mystery is two fold. 1. Identifying a coordinate location. 2. then have Nasa provide public on request high detailed pictures of say 10 squred kilometers around that point.
Sheesh. I linked the map here:
I make the location of the "shard" to be at about 7ºW 3.5ºS.
I gave you the source for the high resolution LROC images.
Do something on your own...please. Narrow it down. Look for the image(s) you want. But the "shard" is enormous. It's something like 200 km from the camera. It would not take a very high resolution image to find it.

Surveyor 6 Landed 10 November 1967 in Sinus Medii (0.5°N latitude, 358.6°E longitude), almost dead center on the front side of the moon. One of its key experiments was measuring the surface chemistry with an alpha scattering detector, which showed the landing area to be basalt, similar to the surface measured by Surveyor 5. Surveyor 6 completed the data acquisition that the Apollo program needed and thus allowed Surveyor 7 to be sent to a site that was of higher scientific interest.
