Elvis Presley's Memphis crypt going up for auction

By Giselle Nguyen May 29, 2012

Before being moved to Graceland, where it currently is buried, Presley's body was kept in a private crypt in Forest Hill Cemetery, Memphis for two months. 

His mother's body was also interred in the crypt before being buried alongside her son. It has been empty since both Presley and his mother were removed in 1977.

The auction is a part of a two-day sale on June 23 and 24 by Julien's Auctions. A representative from the auction house said,  "It's definitely a conversation piece. Only one person can say, 'Hey, I'm going to be buried where Elvis Presley was."

Bidding is set to begin at $100,000.
