For sale is an original Elvis Presley 78rpm SUN Record from mid-1955, the "SUN 223" which was also Elvis' final SUN single before he switched over to RCA.
It features one of Elvis' signature songs, backed by Scotty Moore and Bill Black - the A-SIDE features Mystery Train and B-side features I Forgot To Remember To Forget.
This is a rare find as 78s are the original vinyls and most were purposely broken when replaced by 45s.
The trail-off / deadwax has hand-etched serial/identification numbers which are as follows...
Mystery Train side; SUN 20
I Forgot To Remember To Forget side; SUN 20
The LABELS display extremely well, they are beautiful - no writing, no stickers, no stamps, no rips nor tears or any other blemishes really. They're almost as good as you can get with a record that was pressed over 60 years ago!
The original record would have been sold in a plain brown sleeve. It is in a old MGM Record sleeve that my Grandpa put it in years ago.
The record is in fine shape. Both sides of the record displays no blemishes or marks. We grade it visually at VG+
Notice via pictures I sent from a Elvis collectible website that this record is worth $800-1600 and is the 5th most valuable original sun record on a 78 recorded between 1954-1955.
From a smoke-free environment!
