Re: TOS "Props" on Pawn Stars

It seems you can always spot communicator replicas because they don't make the exact-same grade of Kydex plastic anymore. So the texturing is always off on reproductions.

On top of that, even a true original communicator looks different from what was seen in the episodes. This is because the show was filmed at a limited resolution, giving the prop a nice, leathery sheen that arose because the texture and gloss you'd see in person were blurred together.
