The offered Sterling silver cuff links with a large, capital letter "E" on the face of each were owned by Elvis Presley and were given to his cousin Patsy Presley. Elvis was partial to pieces of jewelry with his initials and even his whole name on them. He owned many such rings, cuff links and necklaces. (These cuff links would go great with the Sterling silver ring with a large "E" on the face, available as another lot in this auction!) The cuff links are accompanied by a letter from noted collector Tom Salva detailing his acquisition of them among other items he purchased from Patsy. The letter states,

The item listed and shown above has been in my personal Elvis Presley collection since 1988. I purchased this item, and many others, from Patsy Presley, Elvis Presley’s cousin who worked as secretary in the offices at Graceland for many years during Elvis’ career. The item was originally from a jewelry box from Elvis’ bedroom dresser. I purchased the jewelry box and all its contents from Patsy in 1988. While it didn’t contain any of Elvis’ ornate jewelry with diamonds and gold, etc., it did contain many rings, watches, money clips, cuff links, bracelets, pins and other items of this sort that were often gifted to Elvis by family, friends and even fans. Included below is a copy of the money order with which I purchased the items from Patsy Gambill (her married name at the time) as well as a color copy of the handwritten letter from Patsy, dated October 25, 1988, describing the jewelry box and what it meant to Elvis.

Also accompanying is a color copy of the original letter from Patsy Presley Gambill, as referenced in Tom's letter. Each cuff link's face measures 7/8 x 5/8 inches and on the interior of each clasp is marked "D:B STERLING." They presents with only minimal wear. Near Mint condition.
