Now i am certainly no beatles expet, but that George Harrison doesnt look right to me. But hey, his early sigs im not familiar with.

Did they get the PSA guy to come in and look at it??

B/c if they just bought it on good faith, or had Chris Morales or AAU look at it, its a safe bet its bad.

But some of the guys on here are experts on the beatles, and im sure they will be of much more help

the styles look correct for the time period

The contract and signatures are definitely real because I remember this being up for sell back in 2008. It's Brian Epsteins personal copy of the first contract he signed with the Beatles. Only I'd be weary of was how it ended up on Pawn Stars? Might it be a reprint? Here's the article about the contract: http://www.theguardian.com/music/2008/aug/12/thebeatles.auction.news

Steve Grad from PSA came in and said it was genuine. He said it was worth $500 thousand. The seller wanted a million. Rick offered him $350 thousand but the seller declined.

It probably was a scripted exchange and an opportunity for the owner to show off the piece.

I can't think of any other good reason for bringing an item like that into a pawn shop, even the most famous one in the US.

I've been shooting and reviewing concerts for 2 years and it's been great.  Getting to be that close to the stage, even for only 3 songs, is an awesome experience.  Hanging out after the show to try and catch the artists for an autograph is fun…
