It's not a scar you see on those early fifties pictures.
Elvis had a ward on his wrist and it shows pretty well in these pics.
A little later on in the fifties he had it removed in the hospital.
Okay, and here for the weird part: rumor has it that this ward was not disposed of, but kept on water in a jar. Even heard somewhere that this jar is on display somewhere in the States.
Can you even imagine that?
