Rarely did Elvis exhibit typical celebrity behavior during his early military service, but while Elvis was stationed and living in Germany between 1958 and 1960, he adopted a more relaxed behavior during his private time and would sign autographs for fans. With his fame still in its infancy, these early signatures, especially those penned during his military service, are quite desirable. The offered signed page from a loan book shows that the loan was paid weekly by the lendee from September 20, 1959 until October 18, 1959. The initial entry has “56” as the year, but this has been corrected to “59.” Elvis was in Germany during this period, and while he is on maneuvers on October 18, 1959, the earliest this autograph could have been signed, he does end up in the hospital by October 24, which is the day before the next installment payment would have been made in the offered loan book page. Elvis has written “Thanks, Elvis Presley” in pencil upside down and diagonally along the bottom of the page. The unusual loan page containing this excellent autograph measures 4 1/2 by 2 15/16 inches (11.43 x 7.46 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



Creases and wear to the loan paper, which has been applied to heavier stock paper.
