The offered example of Elvis Presley's first Sun Records release, Number 209, has likely never been played, and it is as clean as any “file copy” ever sold publicly. The record label reads “‘That’s All Right” (Arthur Crudup), Elvis Presley, Scotty and Bill" with "Wabash BMI 209” and “Vocals U-128" on side one. On the reverse, the label reads “‘Blue Moon of Kentucky’ (Bill Monroe), Elvis Presley, Scotty and Bill" with "Wabash Peer 209” and “Vocals U-129." This record is a “Memphis Pressing,” as evidenced by the “delta” or “push” marks on the labels, three small indentations of the paper where the record stamper left indentations on the record itself when it was pressed at Plastic Products, Inc. where Sun had records made in Memphis. This detail usually indicates that the record is of an earlier vintage because Plastic Products didn't have a huge capacity. When Elvis' singles started selling big, Sam Phillips also had them pressed at other pressing plants in California and Pennsylvania. Those examples do not have these “delta” marks. The 45 measures 7 inches (17.8 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: NM condition with only the most mild, nearly invisible scuffs in the dead wax visible under high magnification. As close to MINT condition as we have ever seen on an example of this record.
