Elvis' Pill Bottle Fetches $2,640

Posted on Tue, Jun 19, 2007 at 4:00 AM

A prescription pill bottle belonging to Elvis was sold at an auction on Saturday for $2,640. The auction had drawn media attention because originally 12 pills remained in the bottle and were included in the sale.

The prescription, written by Dr. Nick, was for the antihistamine Naldecon. The auction house's president Darren Julien removed the pills after being told by the Los Angeles Police Department that selling them would be against the law.

A pistol belonging to Elvis sold for $28,000, and an umbrella used by Marilyn Monroe during a photo shoot took in $48,000.

Proceeds from the auction will go to Yoko Ono's John Lennon Education Bus Tour, a music-education program.
