Default Elvis presley's 357 revolver expected to sale for 275,000.00

Down here in the Memphis area we supply the world with genuine EP artifacts. Somebody has sat on this gun awhile to command such a price. They sale EP hair, clothes, etc..

The main thing is don't sell too soon, let the market for the particular item you have mature. That is why I am still holding on to Elvis's last Iphone that was in his posession upon his leaving this world. You should see the contacts list.

I believe it should read "engraving was done in Germany"

I can't believe he fell for that.

About 20 years ago I saw his pantera at an auction. It had broke down and he emptied his .22 revolver into the dashboard. Must have been his later years. Some of the bullets were still in it. not cool, cool
