Offered are seven Western Union Telegrams to Sun Record Company from Monarch Record Manufacturing Co. for labels and mother stampers for Elvis Presley and other artists' records. Mother stampers are used to make the stampers that are used in the final production of the records at Monarch. The telegrams are dated from November 1954 to November 1955, and singles covered in the orders include:

  • Elvis Presley: Sun 209 "That's All Right" / "Blue Moon of Kentucky";
  • Elvis Presley: Sun 210 "Good Rockin' Tonight" / "I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine";
  • Elvis Presley: "Sun 217 "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" / "Baby, let's Play House";
  • Johnny Cash: Sun 221 "Hey, Porter" / "Cry! Cry! Cry!"; and
  • Billy "The Kid" Emerson: Sun 214 "Move, Baby Move" / "When it Rains, It Pours".

The final two telegrams are accompanied by handwritten notes (in Marion Keisker's hand, most-likely) chronicling the fulfillment of the orders and summarizing another telegram concering Smokey Joe's Sun 228 "The Signifying Monkey" / "Listen to Me Baby". The orders are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the "Elvis Presley Museum" signed by legendary Elvis collector and expert Jimmy Velvet. The telegrams measure 8 x 5 3/4 inches and present with expected wear from handling. Near Mint condition.
