New to my eyes as well.

But the seller's caption appears to be incorrect:

This is a photo you will not ever see any where else.. Elvis with my aunt taken in 1957 at the Nashville USMC Recrutment office .
there are to date only 10 copies of this photo


Elvis looks exactly as he does during the December 1956 Hungerford Furniture ad shoot in Memphis.

So my guess is the photo above is from the same day, perhaps in the same building as where the ad was done.

An alternate appears on page 229 in my book "The Atomic Powered Singer." However, in very bad quality as I could only get a poor scan from the paper back in 1992 when I got the article.

Here´s what I wrote about in my book:

The next day (December 12, 1956) Elvis donated some of his prized possessions to the Marine drive for underprivileged children. Headed for some Memphis youngsters were Elvis' teddy bears, trains, and a truck he won tossing baseballs at a carnival. Two of his former Humes High buddies, Pvt. Ed Rotenberry and Pfc. Red West accepted the toys.

Elvis with Pvt. Rotenberry, S-sgt. Ruby Maxwell and Pfc. Red West as Elvis donated toys on December 12, 1956

EDITED: forgot to mention that I believe Doc is right about the photo being from the same day as the Hungerford furniture photos.
I had dated the photos to this date but due to the very bad copy of my previous photo (above) I wasn´t completely sure. Now I am.

Sincerely
Brian
