It didn't appear that the collector in the video would know much about Elvis Presley or about 78s - he seems to me to be a big band/EZ listening vocal collector who has accumulated a lot of LPs and 45s. We didn't get to see any of his 78 collection except for a common black Decca label 78 album (didn't catch the artist, but none of those are rare). Don't know what was on the 16-inch transcription he was flashing, but it was probably not very valuable either.
