Original 1966 Batarang

While living in LA, a friend of mine received this as a gift from legendary super fan Forrest J Akerman. This is an original Bat-A-Rang from the 1966 feature film. It's a little worse for wear but still a fantastic piece.
Among his many credits, Mr. Ackerman published the successful Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine.

A visit to the Akerman Museum (Akermansion) in Hollywwod in 1998.
Mr. Akerman died in 2008.
