    does anybody have a picture of Elvis with the reserve belt? Because I've never seen a picture of Elvis with it.

    I really wonder about this belt. As fas as I know it has never been used on stage. At least not the occasions we know about. To me this belt seems something they have created because the original belt was given away....

    Just wondering...could it be there was the intention of wearing the suit in late 76 just like its red and black counterparts and a new belt prepared, but EP never used it??

    I made some very detailed photos of this belt. Also I managed to buy one of these buckles. That's why I am wondering if this second belt was ever worn on stage.

    I also have a buckle of the pheasant, which is on the worn belt.

    Agreed, when you look at other belts they look tarnished and dull with the passing of time, this belt however looks very clean??

    the buckles are from the 70s. So whenever this extra belt was made it was back then and not recent. But if it was never worn then it would remain clean.

    They must have chosen to polish this belt and none of the other ones then because when you look at other belts including the Mexican Sundial the metal portions are clearly dull... Belt designs aren't that difficult to replicate as B & K can attest!

    You have to be suspicious of what EPE display as they are known for inaccuracies.

    the design of the embroidery is exactly the same as the other phoenix belts. I don't think even B&K could make them the same that accurate.

    Also as I mentioned the buckles are definitely from the 70s. You can't get that many original buckles any more.
    Therefore my assumption is that the belt was made in the 70s with the suit, but never used. That would keep it as fresh as it is.
    Makes you wonder why.

    Maybe somebody could ask Gene?

    The original belt didn't get lost, since it was auctioned off in 1996 or so.
