    Mark Hamill "Luke Skywalker" hero Lightsaber from Star Wars and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. (TCF, 1977 & 1980) This lightsaber was used by Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker in both Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. It is the non-fighting version of the famous Jedi weapon. This particular version is constructed from an existing Graflex flashgun from the 1930s, measuring 10.5 in., and is fitted with resin black grips around the base attached with adhesive and rivets, as well as a D-ring riveted on the bottom to attach to Luke's belt. This lightsaber is in quite good condition for its age, but is missing the circuit board detailing usually attached to the clasp. The silver tape, which originally covered the Graflex name, has also been removed. An incredibly important and iconic piece of Star Wars lore, this hero lightsaber used by Luke comes directly from the archive of Gary Kurtz, producer of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, and is accompanied with a letter of authenticity signed by Gary Kurtz. An incredible piece of film history used for the very first appearance of the spectacular Jedi weapon which thrilled audiences the world over. Provenance: Profiles in History Auction #33, lot 347, December 11, 2008.
