A lady just called the office asking if we knew anyone who wanted to buy a stuffed HMV Nipper. The soft toy dog originally came from the Paul Lichter collection and was supposedly from Elvis' 1957 Californian tour. The buyer was informed that Elvis "romped" on stage with the toy, but we've never seen any evidence of this happening. The above photo shows a "solid" nipper, the one in question is a soft, stuffed version.

The required amount... £20,000.00!!!!

Any thoughts on the story (we can guess your thoughts on the price)? email me at editor@essentialelvis.com
