    A piece of the Lars Homestead (Luke Skywalkers home from "A New Hope")

    This was attained years ago (a long time ago, pre-restoration) while visiting Tunisia. A truly unique and rare item, I will include pictures taken from the day I visited the set.

    Perfect Christmas gift for the Star Wars fan that has everything.

    $600 obo free shipping in the US to get it to you before Christmas.

    Mike, you have had some extremely cool stuff for sale here over the years. But this one...

    Help me out here. Other than your say-so, how do any of us know that this isn’t just a chunk of stone veneer that fell off the side of your garage?

    Not accusing you of any deception, and I have no reason to distrust you, just looking for some way to assure myself. What assures us that this is the genuine article?

    Piggy-backing on this post: a COA would probably put a buyers mind at ease. If there's a COA, you could more than likely fetch a good chunk of change.

    Mrs. Rosso is an even bigger Star Wars fan than I am. And that’s saying a lot.

    And I live 20 minutes away from you.

    Help me out here, Mike. How do I prove to her that this is where is came from?

    That makes the difference between “Coolest Christmas gift ever” and “cheap bastard gave me a hunk of rock.”

    Yes, I agree a COA would be nice, since I obtained these myself and did not purchase them I do not have one, I can for what its worth, write up a letter of authenticity about it and my obtaining it and include that. unfortunately thats the best I can do. I have my piece and gave pieces to my children and a close friend, this one has been sitting on the shelf for years. and just though I would post to see if anyone would want/enjoy it .

    Unfortunately it does come down to my word, but anyone who has been to the site or has knowledge should be able to confirm it is authentic. That is the best I have.

    Thanks for understanding,
    mike

    I’m a pretty big Star Wars fan here but...

    Tell you what, get that rock signed by George Lucas and Mark Hamill and we can talk.

    I think you mean it was attained "a long time ago, in a desert far, far away..."

    Definitely on the right track there!

    Some years back, this guy I knew around town bought a 1st edition of Playboy magazine on eBay for a little over $1000. This was back around 1999 as I remember. We all thought he was nuts to pay that much for it. That is, until about a month later, we heard that he actually knew one of the security guards at the Playboy Mansion; he slipped him the magazine and they snapped a photo of Mr. Hefner autographing the cover.

    Then he turned around and re-sold it on eBay for more like $10,000

    We weren't laughing so much about it after that...

    COA? I always have laughed at those

    Are they fake proof?

    (not with regards to this item. If it is the real deal, I think it's cool and I hope you get what you want for it)

    Agreed, I offered to write one because some asked, but they are worth the paper printed on in most cases and offered to provide photos from the day it was obtained. it is what it is :)

    If this rock is authenticated then it might worth twice that.

    Seriously, forget Fchat and offer the piece to the Prop Store. THEY have the audience for this.
