Star Trek fans are battling on auction website eBay for the hit TV series' most famous props--the original pointy ears worn by Leonard Nimoy's Mr. Spock character.

The latex prosthetics were worn by Nimoy between 1966 and 1969 and are expected to fetch more than $3,800 when bidding ends April 1.

The highest bidder will also receive production paperwork for one of the episodes in which the ears appeared.

Star Trek fan club member Phillip Usher says, "Mr. Spock is one of the most recognizable faces on TV, to be able to wear his ears in the house or to the shops would be amazing."
