My suggestion would be to contact Master Kang Rhee in Memphis. He is the one who gave that belt to him. I do know he was the one who gave Elvis the nickname "Tiger". Red was "Dragon", Sonny was "Eagle" and so on.

I can't see the picture but if you mean the close up one with the Korean and Chinese writings on the left,it is his name, "Elvis Presley" written in Korean..

That would make sense, since the guy that awarded it to him is Korean. Nice work.

I'm not sure if this was the belt but the story went, when Elvis asked Lamar, " do you know what that says?", Lamar came back with, "with six you get free egg roll"
