I am pretty sure it's a cropped photo from October 26, 1957 (SF).

When Elvis was in Paris for the second time (July 3-5 '59), the Teldec
(Telefunken / Decca) manufacturing facility discovered that the first pressing
had the wrong name on it (Presly).Not too long after Elvis returned to Ray
Barracks, Elvis was presented the golden record with the correct spelling.
So I assume there are 2 pressings of his golden record ? Rare!
note: a less cropped photo can be found in the book Elvis, Like any Other soldier

The misprinted gold record is in the Nortorf TELDEC museum.
(thanks to GBE Magazine)
I wonder if this gold record with the correct spelling is in the trophy room.
Is there someone who can check this ?
I'd also like to know if there are more gold records from European countrys such as Germany there.

That's what I was thinking. Elvis dressed kind of "normally" for the 70's. Looks like jeans,probably cords? Short sleeve shirts seemed rare in the 70's too
He also looked mighty trim & tanned.

1. ) There definitely is an alternate photo of the late '63 picture of Steve Sholes presenting Elvis with a gold record for the Christmas album. It's in the book that was done with recent DeAgostini 10 DVD / memorabilia / book box set. A better quality version of the photo Doc posted from Billboard can be seen in the 35th Anniversary Graceland guidebook (page 63). The photo in the Graceland guide book has Elvis smiling and Steve Sholes is looking to his right. The other photo in the DeAgostini set has both Elvis and Steve Sholes looking straight ahead with neither of them smiling.
2.) There definitely are alternate photos of those taken at the second press conference in Houston 1970. There's one where Elvis is smiling and the guy on Elvis' left is smiling. This one I believe was in either Tunzi's first or second recording sessions book. It also in the Graceland 35th Anniversary Edition on page 63. There's another photo from that press conference where Elvis and the two guys flanking him are all looking straight ahead and none of them are smiling. This second photo is in Ernst's "A Life In Music" book.
3. Having looked back at this thread, I noticed something...Elvis was presented the gold record for "Heartbreak Hotel" at the "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" recording session. But wasn't Elvis presented the gold record for "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" on the second Milton Berle Show appearance? Surely there are photos of that, right? I noticed the OP did not post any pictures of this yet.
4. When was Elvis presented a gold record for "Don't Be Cruel" / "Hound Dog" and "Love Me Tender" / "Any Way You Want Me (That's How I Will Be)"? I've seen a photo of Elvis with a L.A. disk jockey by the name of Lou Irwin and Elvis is holding a gold record. I'd have to dig it out and look at it. It either dates from late 1956 or early 1957. I don't recall what the gold record was for.
