Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $857.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Diddley’s personally-owned black leather wallet, 3.5 x 4.75, featuring his custom special deputy sheriff’s badge from Bernalillo County, New Mexico, engraved with the text, “D.N.A., Bo Diddley, Rock & Roll, #1,” with an enameled design in the center resembling the liberty bell, surrounded by the words, “Liberty & Justice For All.” The left side of the wallet contains a Special Deputy Commission identification card, 3.5 x 2.5, appointing him to the position for the period of July 24, 1990, to July 31, 1995. The card is signed on the reverse by Diddley with his true name and pseudonym, “Ellas McDaniel AKA Bo Diddley.” Overall creases to the identification card, otherwise fine condition. Diddley frequently accessorized his wardrobe with badges, and had an affinity for the Old West. A one-of-a-kind personal item from the great bluesman, highlighted by the unusual variation of his signature. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
