DescriptionElvis Presley Owned Chief Deputy Badge For Lee County Mississippi (1974). On September 30 and October 1, 1974 Elvis played in South Bend, Indiana on the campus of Notre Dame University. He and his entourage stayed at the Royal Inn where our consignor's late wife, Anna Niles, worked as a housekeeper, assigned to take care of the King's room and any associated housekeeping needs. Generous as ever, before he left the hotel Elvis personally thanked the housekeeping crew and signed autographs. Upon his departure, Mrs. Niles discovered a monogrammed leather wallet containing Elvis' Chief Deputy badge from Lee County, State of Mississippi, Lee County being the locale of Elvis' birthplace and childhood home of Tupelo. The wallet also contained Elvis' Police Officer's Association membership card from Palm Springs, CA. dated 11/30/70. Mrs. Niles attempted returning the wallet to Elvis, but in response to her letter, she received only a fan club Christmas postcard, postmarked November 29, 1974, which is included here.
The badge is in like-new condition. The wallet is Very Fine with some age wear along the edges and some fading to the "Elvis Presley" monogram. LOA from Darrell Niles, Sr.
