LOT OF 2
This button was removed from Elvis Presley’s shirt or jacket by Ms. Ruiz who was employed by a company in New York that was retained to cut all of Elvis’ shirts and jackets in small 1 x 2 inch swatches to be used as a promotional bonus item by RCA.
The swatch of clothing was used in the August 1971 release of “Elvis The Other Sides-Worldwide Gold Award Hits, Volume 2” (RCA LPM-6402). There were 2 bonuses in this 4 LP set. One being a piece of Elvis clothing inside an envelope (see photo) and a large color photo of Elvis.
Ms. Ruiz was instructed with other members of the staff to cut these pieces but with no buttons. There were no instructions of what do with the buttons she removed once she completed the task so she and simply put them all in a glass jar.
When the job was completed she remembered she had this jar with all of Elvis’ buttons and decided to keep them, seeing no one was interested in them except the clothing that was cut. Ms. Ruiz has been in possession of these buttons in the same jar since 1971 until I made the purchase.
I purchased this yellow bead from Mr. Tim Franklin who was employed by I.C. Costume Company in the late 1960’s through 1970’s.
This is one of the beads used for his fringe jumpsuit/belt.
