    Aug 21, 2017, 3:25 PM - Back to the Future 2 - Screen Used Prop #1

    Hello,

    I don't normally collect prop items - my personal preference is vintage toys - but I definitely have an appreciation for them. Great site here! I saw Back To The Future at a premiere in 1985 before I had even heard about it. Just lucked into it. I still have pins and stickers with the wrong release date on it! The movie is one of my favorites. Enough preamble - just giving you a brief background. Anyway, sometime around the dawn of the internet - in the early to mid-1990's - I was at a toy show in the LA area. And the item in the attached picture was sold to me. I was told at the time it was an original, screen used, part of the Griff costume - but I've searched Griff screen shots and can't find it anywhere. Perhaps I'm missing something? Or maybe it's part to another character's costume? I trust the credentials of the person who sold it to me - and do not doubt it's part of the movie somewhere. He may just have been incorrect about it belonging to Griff. It's been in a closet for over 20 years in a box - I just decided recently to see if I can ID it. It appears to be a bracelet of some sort. Any assistance from BTTF experts would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks!

    For some reason I can't click on your thumbnail to expand it
    @Jedifyfe is the expert here, he might have some insight.

    Hey there and welcome. I can tell you with 100% absolute certainty that it is NOT from Griff's costume BUT it most likely is a background actors costume piece. Possibly the Cafe 80's patron behind Griff. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks, MattgomeryBurns and Jedifyfe! Sorry for delay - I haven't thought to check back and see if there were any replies. Life is always so busy. I'll pour over any images I can find of the 80's Cafe and see if I can locate it. Much appreciate the help!

    I think Fyfe is right: it's a background extra bracelet. See the PacFax girl:

    OMG - that's IT! Thanks so much Mike J. - and, again, MattgomeryBurns and Jedifyfe! BACABreath is right - amazing eyes. And knowledge. I can't thank you all enough. By the way - I've also got a screen used bat prop from ILM - that I'll post pics soon. I can't identify that either! lol - clearly, I'm not the best at this game!
