Description
Elvis Presley-Medical Bag and Tools of Dr. Hunt Used During Elvis' Birth "The Birth of Rock and Roll" Museum Exhibited (Jimmy Velvet Collection) W/(2) LOAs - This amazing piece of history represents the "Birth of Rock and Roll," as these are the original medical bag and instruments which belonged to Dr. Hunt of Tupelo, Mississippi, the Obstetrician who delivered Elvis Presley along with his stillborn twin brother on January 8th, 1935. This lot includes two medical bags, a leather tool pouch with scalpels, clamps, probes, and other medical devices, empty glass vials to hold common drugs of the 30s, which retain the original pharmacy labels, wooden stand to hold the vials, and the metal and glass nameplate from Dr. Hunt's door. Dr. Hunt passed away in 1952, never realizing he delivered the baby who would become the world's biggest entertainer. These items were acquired directly from the Hunt family by Jimmy Velvet, who created the Elvis Presley Museum, the only museum in the world which is licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises and Graceland, four years before Graceland opened its doors to the public. Velvet owned and was President of the museum, and amassed the largest authentic collection of artifacts owned by Elvis Presley in the world. The tools will come with a copy of an original letter of provenance from Dr. Hunt's daughter, from whom Jimmy Velvet acquired Dr. Hunt's items. The items were later acquired by Erik Dorr, curator of the Gettysburg Museum of History, where the items were displayed for three years. The lot includes original letters of authenticity from both Jimmy Velvet and Erik Dorr. Please see reference photo from the Gettysburg Museum of History's website for the exhibit.
