Thanks for posting these, funky. I have a pic, almost identical to that first one, dated September 29th, 1965. Elvis is stood between a young man and a woman holding the same award, she is a fan that can be seen a several photos taken around the same time.
This new photo looks like an alternative, but, maybe it's just me, she seems to be in much sharper focus than Elvis and he appears completely oblivious to her!
Maybe I'm just jealous that I never got to stand that close to him!
Great pix though, and thanks for all you post for us to see.
ps - I have tried and tried but I still cannot post pix on here, maybe someone knows the one I am talking about and will post it?
