Darth Vader is one of the most well known fictional characters from the series, Star Wars, and one of the most iconic villains of all time. Initially a Jedi, Anakin Skywalker is lured to the dark side of the Force and eventually becomes the leader of the Galactic Empire alongside Emperor Palpatine. His fall is brought on during a battle with his son Luke, and former master. Darth Vader’s lightsaber was built after he lost his previous saber during a battle. His new lightsaber was used against the Jedi, along with other opponents. It was also used to destroy Obi-Wan Kenobi and cut off the hand of Luke Skywalker. The lightsaber was destroyed after the final battle, falling into the reactor shaft well.

‘’I would highly recommend making online purchases from Stout Gold & Silver. I was a little hesitant at first because it was going to be my first time purchasing from them so I gave them a call and they took extra time to walk me through the process. Turns out there was not much to it, I placed the order for check payment, mailed off my check and they sent me an update when my order was being shipped out. All the pieces of silver came exactly as described and were undamaged, they did a very good job packaging the pieces. All and all, I am very satisfied and look forward to placing my next order with them. I hope this is helpful comment for anyone interested in doing business with them.’’
‘’ Started buying silver coins a few years ago, great service, honest prices. I always deal with a guy named Brett, he is pretty funny, super helpful, and very nice. 10/10 would buy again from them. ’’
‘’Best Gold and Silver dealer bar none! And the safe storage is both affordable and very secure. This business also has the advantage of being owned run by Tom Stout, who i would trust with just about anything. Admittedly I'm friends with Tom as well as a customer but he really is a man of his word, if he says it, that's the way it's going to happen.’’
‘’Ordered a 1986 Proor Libertad and was very pleased with my purchase! Great price and super fast shipping with no hassle. It even came with the original box and I thought it was just the coin. I work at a coin shop and it’s great to do business with other great coin shops. I highly recommend this shop! Thanks for the amazing coin!’’
‘’Stout is very dependable and willing to make sure you get what you want! Thanks for the great service!’’
