    Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing but I can't understand why Jack Lord would want to get rid of these things when he and Elvis were supposed to be good friends???? Does anyone know how to read X-rays?

    I might be wrong about this, but didn't Jack Lord die?
    It may be his estate making some cash

    Yes Rick you're correct. Jack Lord died back in 1998. When we go the things that mean a lot to us, often don't mean as much to those we left behind and they get sold.

    Aha, now it makes sense. Thank you Rick and JDD for telling us that Jack Lord died. I didn't know that and yes you're right, one's personal effects does not always mean the same to those they were left to.

    The Belt in the picture above was a present to Elvis from Jack Lord. Not sure how this found its way back to Jack Lord? Perhaps it has been in a private collectors hands and the collection has been brought together at some latter stage. Perhaps Leroy might be able to help?
