I picked this up from a seller on etsy the other day. A pretty good replica I think and much closer to the size of the original piece than Todds tiny replica

That is a very nice replica. And I trust there are markings on the other side, right? ;)

I never realised before how much too small Todds version was. This one is actually too tall by a cm or so but is the correct width (11cm) according to the Lucasfilm achieve book

11cm?? Wow, that would make the headpiece quite a large artifact -- at least compared to many of the replicas out there, it seems! It certainly didn't look that big in the movie. Although, yeah, the archive book (page 130) does say the dimensions are 9 x 1 x 11cm. And if you look at the photo of Marion holding it, you can see that the tip of her finger to her top knuckle roughly cover the width of the headpiece. My tip-to-knuckle length is 10.5cm, so I guess 11cm is pretty accurate. The replica I have is only 8.5cm wide, and I've always felt that seemed right to me. Apparently not! :D

The difference in scale between the etsy version and the Todd version. The etsy one is much closer to screen used

Thank you for showing the pics. I have been trying to decide on a headpiece for quite some time.
