Elvis Presley's Will Found in Bin Is Up for Sale

A copy of 's will, which was discovered in a trash can, is expected to fetch up to $1,500 when it goes under the hammer this weekend. A law firm employee kept the document after finding it in an office garbage bin during a clear-out in 1987, a decade after the "Jailhouse Rock" hitmaker died.

The paperwork will be auctioned off alongside a lock of Presley's hair and a scarf once worn by the singer at the Henry Aldridge & Son sale in Wiltshire, England on Saturday, November 13.

"Marked 'deceased', this is a file copy of this document from the mid 1970s and would have been used extensively during that traumatic period in 1977," auctioneer Andrew Aldridge says, adding "The will gives a fascinating insight into the privates wishes of the king of rock 'n' roll."

A picture of the will is available for preview at Independent.co.uk.
