I never saw the exhibit but it looks like it's not cut out. It looks like there is a piece of black tape over a hole. Where an xlr cable plugged into. you can see in the exhibit photo there is an indentation where there is a round hole.It's from a Jet Pack in a private collector's, uh, collection. One of the main jet pack's used in ROTJ is the one at AOSW with the square cut out of the side.
