1973 Nail Studded suit

Mon Dec 03, 2012 2:05 am

I have this photo in this folder: June 28, 1973, St Louis MO, Kiel Auditorium. But there are two options:
1. the photo is indeed from June 28 but this is a fake, Elvis doesn't wear this medalion in 73 tours
2. the photo is from Las Vegas (or Lake Tahoe)
What is the real date, please?

Turquoise medallion is an infamous Shaver-Noland "EP-Owned" fake item, with supposed photograph to increase/support the value. I believe this pic. also shows up in The Elvis Book Series. As far as I can determine, Shaver-Noland faked a bunch of crap, but it was a one time thing.

There are a ton of fake EP items (signed/owned/etc.) that are continuing to make the rounds to this day, just take a look at some of the current auctions being pushed in the main "All Elvis" section.

If this is indeed the original photo it has to be from Jan/Feb 1974 Las Vegas season because of the cross he´s wearing around his neck.
He didn´t use that one during all of 1973.

Thank you all for your help, it's good to know the real date.

I will never understand why a "fan" can do some kind of sh.t, fake a photo or any item...for me Shaver is just a liar.
I wonder if all those photos are truly taken by him... :roll:

Thank you for the information. Somehow the picture looked strange to m, but I didn't know what it was. So thanks for pointing out that it is a fake.
