Spock's ear to be auctioned
Star Trek fans will have the opportunity to own on a piece of sci-fi history as a prosthetic ear worn by Leonard Nimoy who played Spock goes up for auction.
The iconic memento has been carefully preserved for more than 30 years and is now set to be sold off at an auction of Hollywood memorabilia next month. Dan Levin, a spokesman for Premier Props, the company behind the sale, says, "This ear was kept by the prop master from the film. It was carefully wrapped up which is important because silicone latex can deteriorate. "Spock's ears are an iconic part of 'Star Trek' and fans across the world would love to own it. We've already had lots of bids."
The auction will take place in Los Angeles April 2.
