Elvis Presley's piano up for auction
A white grand piano once owned by Elvis Presley is going up for auction.
The instrument was purchased by Presley back in 1957 and was a fixture in his Graceland home.
It is estimated that the piano will fetch more than $1 million (£645,000), reports BBC News.
Doug Norwine, of Heritage Auctions, said the piano was "an emotionally-charged prized possession of the King himself".
The instrument is one of several items of Presley memorabilia being sold off in the August 14th auction, along with a contract signed with RCA and a pair of his gold-framed sunglasses.
It is expected that the record contract – which was signed by Presley, his father and his manager Colonel Tom Parker – may raise more than $150,000.
