Would like to see some Pics of the Peacock Suit from the King on Display...was it displayed in the past in Graceland or sold in the near 80s directly on a Auction?
Thx

I think the Peacock suit was given away long before Graceland was open to the public.
I saw it in the 90s twice in the UK: at auction of artefacts from Paul Litcher collection & during an Elvis event organised by Elvisly Yours.

Here's a picture from the auction catalog.
For the record, the auction was held at Bonhams in London on August 30th 1997.

Is the Peacock Belt, with the suit? Or still a part of the Archives at Graceland, or did Elvis, or someone, give the Belt away as well?

the peacock suit and belt are in the hands of two different collectors.

The picture that Energy Catalizer posted is NOT a close up of the real suit, but a b&k replica.
There are differences in used colors of the pattern and the used rhinestones are completely incorrect (size and color).

I have been to Graceland over 20 times since it was opened, including being the third paying visitor through the front door on the first day.... and I do not ever recall seeing the Peacock stage suit displayed at any time.
