To Whom It May Concern
As the stepbrother to the late Elvis Presley, I received a request to view and authenticate items said to belong to my world famous stepbrother.
Having spent 17 years growing up with, living with and later working for my world famous stepbrother. I am considered one of the foremost authorities on the life and times of Elvis Presley. I have authored four books and been used as a consultant on numerous print, film and video projects relating my stepbrother Elvis Presley.
After examination of submitted item "The Book Entitled The Omen." I authenticate that the markings and notes on the book's pages were made by Elvis Presley. Part of his personal library, Elvis carried this particular book with him on and off tour as seen in accompanying photo. In addition as part of his personal entourage, i often times personally carried this particular book and saw him refer to it often. I add this as further confirmation that the book did belong to Elvis Presley.
I consider this a rare item and one of high collectible value.
