Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
From the collection of “Rockin’” Robin Rosaaen.
Their love was legendary and their parting was amiable, as evidenced in this one-page Supplement to Property Settlement Agreement in which assets are divided. According to the document, Priscilla is to receive $100,000 tax-free and should any claim be made against this sum, Elvis has agreed to be liable. This agreement is dated August 15, 1972, and framed with two images of Elvis and Priscilla leaving the Santa Monica courthouse the day their divorce was final. Elvis has signed in bold black marker; Priscilla has signed in blue ink above Elvis’ signature as well as on the bottom line intended for Elvis’ attorney, who then signed in black marker over her initial mistaken signature. This supplemental agreement is offered with a copy of the complete 11-page settlement agreement. The document and images represent the good nature in which the two left their fairytale marriage to begin the next chapters of their lives. The framed display measures 18 1/2 by 35 1/2 inches (46.99 x 90.17 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: The framed display is in excellent condition overall with strong signatures of both Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
