Elvis Presley's fingerprints have been sold at a London auction house for $81,740.
(September 5, 2008) An application for a gun permit filled in by Elvis Presley and containing his only authenticated set of fingerprints have been sold at a London auction house for $81,740. The form, for the state of California and requesting permission to carry a Colt 38 revolver and a Beretta 7.6 automatic, was completed by the singer in 1970. It contains not only his confirmation of his sex, hair and eye colour, height, weight and date of birth but a full set of fingerprints from both hands. This document is the only record of the late singer prints known to exist.
