Julien’s Auctions said on Monday (Oct 5) that Presley played the piano at his Graceland mansion. He bought it in 1955 as a gift for his mother. After she died, Presley’s wife Priscilla decided to adorn its original walnut finish with 24 karat gold-leaf as a gift for the couple’s first wedding anniversary in 1968.

Also up for auction is a Beatles logo drum skin used by the band in their first performances in the United States.
