    No - The short answer is that authentic examples exist with and without lettering.

    Up until the guy who is drilling out custom DT sabers recently, has there ever been a repro DT with a lettered hilt?

    [/QUOTE]

    There are a few repro/fakes that have used lettering. There are so many other points to look at when looking at a saber, the lettering (or lack of) doesn't really even come to mind. Once you have seen the real thing, and spent some time studying them, you can spot a repro. a mile away.

    The bottom line with hilt lettering is that no one has put together a comprehensive list of what,when,where or how they were used. Even with the standard sabers, I am not aware of anyone who has complied a definitive list.

    Can anyway suggest the fair market value of a VC Jawa with a slight tear under the armpit in the cape, say 1mm, does it effect the price much?

    @ Adam Burges:

    I just sold one on eBay that was AFA graded and authenticated. It only graded 70 because of the slight tear in the cape (which was probably a bit more than what you are describing. Anyways, it sold for $400 in about 1/2 a day after I listed. Hope that helps as a ball-park for value. I don't think the fact that it was graded by AFA (at 70) put any sort of "premium" on it, other than the piece of mind of the buyer that it was real.

    very nice, good find.

    I'm interested in getting an actual DT Luke/Ben/Vader, but does anyone know where to acquire replica DT sabers? I have every vint fig plus a few variations, but I'm not hung up on having all the accessories/weapons be vintage. For me it's enough to have the fig in decent condition so it will display nicely for dioramas.

    I was wondering the same thing. I'm just getting back into vintage and I've ALWAYS wanted a DT saber Luke, but I'm not ready to pay the higher prices for a clean one. The Vader and Ben would be a bonus. This would have been a PERFECT alternative.

    Anyone know what happened to these guys?

    From what I recollect, they sold the molds and remaining stock to someone else. They still pop up now and again.

    Say "NO!" to U Grading!
