*Elvis Presley’s prescription pill bottle makes $2,640 at auction.
Several Presley items sold at the annual Julien's Summer Auction in the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Auctioneer Darren Julien commented: "We'd planned to sell the bottle with the pills, but the Los Angeles Police Department told us it would be a federal crime to do it, so sad to say we had to remove the pills."
Other Presley items sold included his gold-plated gun which made $28,800 and a mike once used by him which went for $15,000.
