    Description

    Elvis Presley's Honorary Sheriff Badge. Given to Elvis less than a year before his death, this Shelby County Sheriff badge (serial number 1) was presented by Sheriff Gene Barksdale on September 1, 1976 as a token of appreciation for his support of the department. The badge is encased in a Perspex block with a dedication plate affixed to it, and is accompanied by a custom wooden display box with a SCSD seal on the hinged lid. Elvis 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. He first received an honorary sheriff's badge from Sheriff Bill Morris in 1970, and ultimately acquired several authentic badges (as well as actual law enforcement authority) from subsequent sheriffs in Shelby County. This is fantastic, one-of-a-kind item is in Excellent condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
