A Starfleet tunic from the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. Starfleet officers wore their tunics while on duty aboard the Enterprise. In the pilot episode "The Cage" (100), the shirts had ribbed necklines, color-matched to the tunic, not solid black necklines, but they were subsequently modified for use in the rest of the series.
The velour top was originally blue, indicating that it was worn by science officers, but turned mauve after repeated cleanings. A metal zipper runs up the back with the instruction "Iron Like Nylon, Avoid Hot Iron" printed alongside it inside. The tunic is in fair overall condition and exhibits some wear from age and production use, with the seams on the arms having split from the wrist up and both shoulders split. The collar has been reinforced with extra material but this has started to come away.
Estimate: $4,000 - 6,000
