Done! [Sort of] :-)

Apollo 12 returned several pieces of hardware from the Surveyor III lander, which had been on the lunar surface for about two years. Summary here and the NASA analysis report on the returned Surveyor television camera here.

One funny story from Wikipedia - Astronaut Alan Bean smuggled a self-timer for the Hassleblad camera onto the mission. He wanted to take a picture of himself and Pete Conrad next to the Surveyor, presumably baffling the ground crew as to how the photo was taken. Sadly they misplaced the timer and didn't pull off the stunt.
