It is very interesting looking to say the least.
As I posted in the similar thread discussing this same "object" (and I'm not sure why we have two treads on this), it seems that this is either
debris on the scanner that was used to digitize the original film images, or maybe it was debris in the camera.
I say this because the object appears in hundreds of the Apollo 15 mapping camera -- pictures that are of totally different parts of the moon, and
appearing in the same part of the image frame in all of those images.
This is the link to the Apollo 15 Mapping (Metric) camera where all of the images can be found. The "object"appears near the upper left portion of
all of the images of the Moon:

Here is the "object" as it appears in image A15-M-2306:
It can also be found in many many the images before and after that one
Here it is in image A15-M-2327, again in the exact
same part of the image frame:
In a post above, I gave the location of the object in the image frames, and I posted a link to all Apollo 15 mapping camera images, but here is that
Here is a blurred image of NOT the Moon (A15-M-0016). I think this is a picture of something in front of the camera:
The "object" appears in this image, too:
