A background Jedi lightsaber from George Lucas' Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Although ultimately cut from the film, this lightsaber was built for scenes in which multiple Jedi wielded their lightsabers.
The lightsaber features a resin hilt with a threaded metal rod protruding from the top. It is painted to resemble metal and features two static black buttons and two static knobs. The lightsaber has been intentionally distressed to appear well used. It has some wear from production use and age, including light scuffing and scratches. It is accompanied by a custom-made acrylic display and plaque.
The lightsaber comes with two copies of a signed letter from a model maker who worked on the film at Leavesden Studios, making background/stunt weapons for the actors and their stunt doubles. Also included is a copy of a signed letter from producer Rick McCallum, as well as a photo of the crew, several actors in costume and R2-D2. Dimensions: 42 cm x 5.5 cm x 5.5 cm (16½" x 2¼" x 2¼")
