Description

    Elvis Presley's Deputy Sheriff Badge. A Shelby County Special Deputy Sheriff badge (serial number 3) was issued to Elvis by Sheriff Roy C. Nixon on October 10, 1970 -- the first of many law enforcement commissions bestowed upon Elvis. He had an infatuation with law enforcement, and he worked his way up to the ranks at the Shelby County Sheriff's Office in his hometown of Memphis and ultimately acquired several authentic badges (as well as actual law enforcement authority) from subsequent sheriffs in Shelby County. This particular commission gave Elvis full status as a law enforcement officer, including the ability to carry a sidearm and make arrests. Elvis later gave this badge to Charlie Hodges after being issued a Chief Deputy Badge; in October 1976, Hodges returned it to Sheriff Tom Morgan upon being issued a lieutenant's badge. The badge is in Very Fine to Excellent condition. LOA from Sheriff Thomas B. Morgan, Jr. (ret.).
