Peter Mayhew's Chewbacca head from the original "Star Wars" film is on display at Profiles In History in Calabasas Hills, Calif., ahead of a public auction that begins on July 28. Profiles in History, the world's largest auctioneer and dealer of original Hollywood memorabilia, will handle the sale of the celebrated Dreier Collection, which will take nearly two years and several auctions due to the collection’s size, scope and significance. The head of one of the most beloved characters of the 1977 film is estimated to sell for between $60,000 and $80,000.
