Customer Question
What is an original...

What is an original letter written from elvis around 1959 signed? Saw on TV for an auction at "sotherby's" ?" Letters from legends", for a full page letter would sell for approx. $20,000. Signed and know for a fact it is an original.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Sent him a valentine's card and he responded from Graceland while waiting to film Blue Hawaii.
