It appears to be -- never seen it before, although it's a shame it is so far from the stage.

Taken at the 2-25-1961 ES at Ellis Auditorium, one of his last paid live gigs until 7-31-1969 ... at this point eight years, five months and six days away.

Here's what the guy is actually selling, the original negative:

In the photo you can see:

Scotty Moore (guitar), Bob Alexius (acoustic bass), Elvis, D.J. Fontana (drums), Brad Suggs (guitar) and Ron Capone (drums)

Boy, I would love to hear what they sounded like that evening. But we'll probably never know.

Looks like a copy neg made from a print you can see the lines of the paper that they used to use on 3.5" matte photos. So it's not an original negative in my opinion.
But here is Elvis walking on stage at the same show.

well, I respectfully disagree with you. They are not scan lines. I hope if you get the photo printed from the neg that I am wrong and the lines are not on your print. With the neg being 2x2" it might be difficult for you to judge until you get a print made. But good luck.
