Nice find! The eBay page says:

Offered here are TWO original 35mm Camera negatives of Elvis while onstage in July of 1969 at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. These were taken by a freelance photographer. These are NOT copies or duplicates. They are the actual negatives from his camera.


These look like similar ones credited to Peter Borsari, taken at the 7-31-1969 OS. He was a world-class photographer.

Other photographers that evening included Hank De Lespinasse, on assignment for Newsweek, and Jean-Marie Vincent, for Time.

JAT published a few dozen of Hank De Lespinasse's photos from 7-31-1969 OS, and the 8-01-1969 press conference, in Elvis '69: The Return and a few more in Elvis: The Lost Photographs, 1948-1969, including some color shots which prove the stripes in the scarf that legendary night were blue.

What in the world are those "windows" in the bottom of one the pictures?
You can see reflection of EP's J-200.

Actually they aren't mirrors but clear glass. They are common in stages which are used for theatre. During theatre presentations, prompters are placed under the stage, to help out actors who forget their part.

ah that makes sense.

Thanks for the correction.
Due to the angle they act as mirrors I should say then.
