Luke Skywalker's Severed Hand Is For Sale

It might not be real, but the price on eBay certainly makes it seem like it could be.

Apparently, when Mark Hamill's hand was getting cast in plaster for the famous scene where, spoiler alert, Darth Vader cuts off his hand, they accidentally made a mold of Hamill's left hand, when it should have been his right. Supposedly this is the unused plaster mold of his left hand that was never used. This is all according to the eBay description, and could of course be a total fabrication, but if it's not it's a cool, albeit expensive, piece of cinema history. It can be yours today for only $8,500.
