Elvis Presley fan? You could bid for a strand of his hair tomorrow

The auctioneers said it could go for between £50-£5,000.

ELVIS PRESLEY WAS well-known for a great and well-groomed quiff that started a worldwide trend. Now someone can own a strand of hair that made up that quiff as one strand goes up for auction tomorrow.

Not known what it will fetch, the auctioneers said it could go for between £50-£5,000.

Authenticity

But how do we know it is a hair from THE Elvis Presley? It comes with an authenticity letter, a signed document in the name of Thomas Morgan, who claims he knew Elvis.

The document says that Morgan was a close friend of the singer’s hair stylist, Homer Gilleland, who died in 1995.

It states that he cut his hair on a number of occasions and that they had a good relationship and was given many gifts by Elvis.

The letter goes on to say that Gilleland had saved a bag of hair clippings from the years of cutting and styling Elvis’s hair.

The auction is being held at Railtons Autioneers in Wooler, Northumberland tomorrow.
