A gold-plated gun once owned by Elvis Presley is expected to fetch more than $20,000 (GBP10,000) when it is auctioned in California this month (June 16, 2007). Presley gave the Walther PPK as a gift to Hawaii-Five-O star Jack Lord in 1973. The gun is being sold with a licence for it.
Also going under the hammer at the Julien's sale in Beverly Hills is a bottle of prescription pills belonging to the late King of Rock.
A microphone used for Elvis' 1954 radio debut and a Bentley owned by Yoko Ono will also go up for sale, among a total of 300 entertainment memorabilia items.

Id love to own something that once belonged to Elvis, but an empty pill bottle? No thanks. Would not make a proud display

It just goes to verify that people will buy just about anything & believe just about anything, even Elvis fans.
