In 1969 Elvis received near the end of his engagement the famous " gold belt " for breaking all attendances record. That belt became famous as Elvis started to use it as a stage belt with various jumpsuits or with his street clothes.
Elvis received several gifts from the Hilton for similar reasons through the years. At the end of the December 1975 season they gave him a gold medallion, and on September 1st 1973 he received this long torsaded gold chain. That chain was then used on stage by Elvis for all his shows until the end of this engagement.
