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

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'.

foot enough to enable him to put together the other somewhat
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.

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 &
