This is the last catalog number in the Elvis Presley singles releases to be found with a horizontal line. Regardless of what the price guides may indicate, this one is nearly impossible to track down a copy. For that reason, I believe that it's value is greatly underappreciated and should be reconsidered. Maybe one per thousands of offerings to be found and that is being generous. I have seen only two copies period!
