    I have a VERY old and quite rare player's cut up part.

    A "Torso Of ................".
    (dots are where name of character is)

    Back in the days, torsoes where also harder parts to get as a cup up part.
    So, it is sort of a rare in a rare.......

    Well, how much could it be worth nowadays ?

    if i remember correctly these items can not be locked down in order to display then they have to be kept in a secure container so mu guess is that would bring the price down abit for a collector but i could be wrong

    I do believe some can and cannot be locked down, seen some heads locked down. -Could only be the heads though...-

    If it has the word "The" before it then it can be locked down from my experiences.

    It dates back to the old bounty system. Say I was murdered by Sgt Picket, I could then post a reward on the town message board. A person could then go out and seek Sgt Picket and kill him. They would then cut up his body removing the head (torso, arms, legs etc) and return to the message board to claim the reward. I remember having a very large collection of body parts (many of them my own) as morbid as that may sound. But it was a fun system, I can't recall exactly why the discontinued it.
