I know people working on the set of lotr. A couple of months back they were given an embroidered commemorative vest, with the logo on the front, and “133 days” and a ring on the back – to signify reaching the halfway point of principle photography.
Since then rumors have gone around the staff of one of the vests showing up online for sale and going for over $1500.
I’ve seen the item in question, and I know they exist in limited numbers (unlike the lotr T-shirts given the extras working on helms deep).
A lot of the cast and crew are getting lotr stuff autographed, there will be a lot of it showing up when the movies debut undoubtedly. Most of the stars are nice folk and very approachable.Posted in Collectibles, Lord of the Rings, LotR Movies, Old Spy Reports on June 24, 2000 by xoanon
