    Elvis Presley Rare Promo Photo Medallions Group with Prototype (1977). A group of 12 promo Elvis photo medallions, packed in a mailing box addressed to bandleader, theatrical agent, and Elvis Presley staff member Al Dvorin in Chicago. On August 16, 1977, Dvorin was in a hotel in Portland, Maine, wit the Colonel's advance group preparing for the start of Elvis' upcoming tour -- one that would never take place. Al had brought with him a case of Elvis necklaces that were to be sold during the tour. With the news of Presley's untimely death, the necklaces were sent back to the warehouse in Chicago, where they remained for more than 20 years. One of the the medallions is actually a prototype version that is slightly larger with a thicker chain; otherwise, each photo medallion features a 2.25" round photo button, with a small necklace chain in silver metal. Each one is unused, sealed in a plastic bag. Also included is the original larger mailing box, featuring Colonel Tom Parker's label, and a receipt from the manufacturer to Dvorin. The medallions and small box are in Excellent condition; the larger mailing box is in Fair condition. From the Al Dvorin Archive.
