    Extremely rare screen used Type-2 Phaser pistol from Star Trek: The Original Series. (Paramount, 1966-1969) The Type-2 Phaser pistol is the most iconic and sought-after hand prop from the original Star Trek series - it is also the most difficult to obtain. When Star Trek was cancelled, legendary art director Walter M. "Matt" Jefferies gifted this prop Phaser to Paramount Pictures executive production manager Ted Leonard, who was working with Matt on Love, American Style. The consignor obtained this prop directly from Leonard's widow, who has held the piece since 1969. This Phaser is constructed of fiberglass, resin, turned aluminum and acrylic and measures 8.5 in. long x 5.5 in. tall x 2 in. wide. Since this prop is hand made, it exhibits unique characteristics and it screen matches as being worn by Leonard Nimoy as "Spock" in the episode "The Paradise Syndrome." To many science fiction fans around the world, an Original Series Phaser pistol transcends its mere association with an outstanding television series; it represents one of the defining icons of American pop culture. In all our years of business, this is only the second fiberglass Type-2 Phaser pistol we have handled and this example has impeccable provenance. Provenance: From the collection of Paramount Pictures executive production manager Ted Leonard, who was gifted this Type-2 Phaser pistol by Star Trek art director Walter M. "Matt" Jefferies.
