Offered is a receipt from Harry Levitch Jewelers, located at the Hotel Peabody at 159 Union Avenue in Memphis. The receipt is dated 4-29-67 with the notation "HL took on trip." The receipt lists a double strand of cultured pearls, two single strands of cultured pearls, a 34-inch gold neck chain, a 28-inch gold neck chain, and 13 assorted small charms. The receipt is numbered "10329" and totals $861.75. The receipt is accompanied by a copy of a notarized letter from Ron Levitch on Harry Levitch Jewelers letterhead dated August 25, 2004, which lists the invoice numbers, dates and notes of the sales receipts for items sold to or memo'd to, or jewelry repair work performed for, Elvis Presley. Harry Levitch was one of only two non-family members to fly out of Memphis for Elvis and Priscilla's wedding on May 1, 1967. The wedding party gathered in Palm Springs before flying to Las Vegas after midnight on May 1 in two leased jets. Harry Levitch was in the wedding party and likely brought this jewelry with him on this trip for Elvis to review, since the receipt is dated just two days before the wedding. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The receipt measures approximately 6 by 4 3/8 inches (15.24 x 12.06 cm).



Despite typical fading from age, the receipt is in excellent condition overall with a minor tear near the "h" in Levitch, a small ink mark on the right edge and the lower right corner folded ever so slightly.
