Elvis Presley received a Bible in 1957 and wrote notes in it until his death in 1977. His Bible sold for $94,000 at U. K. auction, but his soiled underwear only received a bid of £5000, which was less than the £7000 reserved price and therefore went unsold.
The bible, given to the singer on his first Christmas at his home in Graceland in 1957, was bought by an American man based in Britain, Omega Auctions said on its website.
Other items of his sold at the auction were used cufflinks, a gold pendant chain/necklace and black Flagg Brothers shoes.
The entire Elvis collection, owned by a single British collector, went for more than 100,000 pounds at Omega Auctions in Cheshire, north England.
According to Yahoo news, one American dollar is currently equal to £0.6240.
