You don’t see many of these go up for sale. It’s a pity that there’s a slight chip on the base and that the unit has some scratches.
Nevertheless, this is a RARE Franklin Mint Limited Edition STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE Nine Cardassian Disruptor that is severely hard to find.
It’s a definite collector’s item with or without the scratches, but especially so for an avid collector with the ability to touch up the damage you can see it has in the image.
This was produced by Franklin Mint. I believe when they were originally released they came with a Certificate of Authenticity. I would drop a message to the seller to see if they still have that (although it is also obvious from the image that this is an authentic version).
This is a Limited Edition, 30th Anniversary model of the Cardassian sidearm that was produced in 1998. It is displayed in a clear lucite display attached to a black base.
Note that this item was previously listed with a price of $200. It’s now listed with a significantly reduced bid price of $49.95.
