Elvis Presley Owned Stage Scarf From Collection of Phil Efron with COA. Presented is a scarf owned (likely worn) by the "King," Elvis Presley. This 32 x 32" square russet colored scarf was worn by Presley during one of his concert appearances in the mid-1970s. There are no tears or rips but fold lines abound, having been stored in a sleeve for years. We do note some very light spotting throughout (Possibly perspiration? The female fans in our home office certainly hoped so). This item is accompanied by a COA from known Elvis Presley collector Phil Efron, whose company, Entertainer Wardrobe Services, supplied Elvis Presley with the scarves that he frequently gave to fans during his live performances. Ephron went to a great deal of trouble in cataloging, registering and recording the serial numbers he assigned to each piece in his collection which is referenced in the COA. Estimate Value $200 - UP

Houdini, Harry; Once Owned and Used Key In Performance, Provenance Included. Harry Houdini, arguably the most famous magician and illusionist of the early 20th Century, died in 1926. Most of the equipment and devices he used in his stage shows went to his brother Hardeen, also an illusionist. In 1941 Hardeen maintained a three-year-long friendship with a Mr. Paul Harter of Ohio, an avid lock and key collector. During this period Hardeen sold 78 of his brother's locks and a trove of keys for 25 cents each. This is one of the keys from that collection. Two COAs accompany this sale; one from the purchaser of Harter's collection as well as one from Todd Mueller Autographs, Inc. An 8 x 10 black and white re-strike photo of the great magician accompanies the key, perfect for creating a framed presentation. Key is 1" in length and definitely shows its age. Estimate Value $150 - UP
