Hey guys could use your advice on this DT Luke.

Has "JJ" on the hilt

Real?

What kind of grade do you think it would get?

Thanks in advance!

Looks genuine. As a reference; mine is afa 75. I broke it out of the case. I'm sure that's frowned upon but it's mine...anyway, your paint on the hands and feet/legs looks better than mine...80/85 for yours?

Sabers are always the absolute hardest thing to authenticate, even in person much less from pics. The saber appears to be correct but there is a definite difference in appearance from inner and outer. While I would suspect this to a certain degree due to one being inside the other most likely, the difference appears to be two different colors of yellow plastic. This is a concern as an authentic outer could always be paired with a non authentic inner and vice versa. While I am not a fan of grading, I am an absolute fan of authentication. Tom derby if he is still in the game, bill mcbride, and my personal choice because I already know him is John, the owner of tig, can all authenticate these. I am sure there are others, but the listed guys have tons of experience and time in the hobby. While John may be the lesser well known, tig is used for authentication quite a bit when eBay buyers need to show ebay that an item is not authentic.
