I had a good visit yesterday with Dav Levin from Premier Props.  I got to see the 3 key props that I thought were the ones most likely to be questionable.  Two Hero Tricorders and the Proton Collector.

TRICORDERS

There are three Tricorders in the auction.

Mk IX Static Tricorder  (Which I will not cover)

Mk X Tricorder

TR-890 Relativity Tricorder

Now the problem with the two Hero Light-Up Tricorders is that unless you bust open the back and take photos of the insides, you can’t tell if these are production-made, or are the ones made for Star Trek: The Experience.

So you will have to open the back and photograph the boards and send them to Brett Jones who is the expert I always use.  He can tell you if these Tricorders are production made or for The Experience.

HERO Mk X TRICORDER

Bust it open to find out if it is production made or made for Star Trek: The Experience

 
TR-890 RELATIVITY TRICORDER

The lights on top do not work on this.  As most know, this was based on a travel clock, and comes with a vacu-formed holster.
 

Note top lights

STAR TREK IV PROTON COLLECTOR

It lights up!

I have no opinion on the authenticity of this prop, but have emailed Richard Coyle the prop maker.  This is NOT the one that sold in profiles a few years ago.  

There are a lot more photos on the auction listing.
