The now annual "Auction at Graceland", which occurs every year during the Elvis Presley Birthday Weekend Celebration, was held on Saturday (January 6) with a number of lots
going for more than $10,000 each.

This year's sale included 271 lots with bidders coming from around the world via both the internet and in person on the grounds of Graceland.

All of the items in the auction were offered from third-party collectors and none of the items included came from the treasured Graceland Archives. The mansion and all artifacts in
the Graceland Archives continue to be owned by Lisa Marie Presley and are not for sale. Graceland Authenticated ensured all items from privately owned collection were authentic
prior to the auction.

The top lots (prices include 25% buyer's premium):
Diamond and platinum ring given to Linda Thompson by Elvis Presley - $27,500

Presley's personal globe-shaped free-standing wooden bar from his Beverly Hills home - $22,500
