Elvis with his father Vernon
Crudely torn denominative corner, top left, of a US $10 bill, contained in a glassine slip. Elvis always carried this with him in his wallet. When he died, Vernon transferred this highly personal symbol of connectedness from Elvis' wallet into his own & continued to carry the two corners of the bill until his death. The bond between Vernon and Elvis was intimate, that of one heart in two bodies. All that is known about these two corners of a $10 bill is that both men carried his piece until death: why, is unknown. Perhaps Elvis, who studied numerology, took comfort in the meaning of the number '10'.
Extraordinary 'Elvis Presley Show' Brass Card, designed by Elvis and very possibly unique, 3½"x2¼", one sided and partially engraved; it is signed in the plate by Elvis, and bears the TCB lightning bolt logo as well. 'This is to certify that [his name engraved] Vernon Presley is a member of the ELVIS PRESLEY SHOW [his title engraved] Exec. Administrator Personal Business.' On the back is the manufacturer's mark, Apollo Trophies of Los Angeles.
Tennessee Sheriff's Association, Honorary Membership # 04289. Paper Card, unsigned, 'National Account Reference Card.' Typed 3x1½ note: "The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man's foot enough to enable him to put together the other somewhat higher"
1935 Buffalo nickel, excessively worn and carried deep in a crevice of the wallet. 1935 was the year of Elvis' birth. It seems likely, from the condition of the coin, that Vernon kept this token with him in his wallet from the beginning of Elvis' life, until his own death.
A 5½"x3" note of Jerry Schilling's phone number. Schilling had been Elvis personal aide from 1964 to 1976. Vernon and Jerry were always close. Another 2½"x1½" note of the name and address of a woman in Florida.

Emergency Medical Information Card, signed ('Vernon Presley, 1293 Old Hickory, Memphis'); he lists the infamous Dr. George Nichopoulous, as his physician. 'Dr. Nick' was a close friend of Elvis and the Presleys. Blue Cross Identification Card, accomplished in typescript, for Vernon Presley, of Elvis Presley Enterprises.

Prince Gardner Identification Card, Vernon's name, address, and whom to contact in case of an emergency.
In the pocket of the billfold, two worn $1.00 bills and one $2 bill, with its right corner folded. Along with the usual credit cards & pictures of the kids and a $10 bill. That one piece belonged to Vernon & the other to Elvis clearly indicates the connection between this father & son. A close friend of the Presley's remembers, that she has never seen such a close knit family. After Gladys died, the bond between Vernon & Elvis could not be severed. Vernon lived a mere 22 months after his son, just long enough to finish settling his son's estate. Elvis Auctions | Elvis Autographs
