It's time to firm up our 2016 full band-signed Beatles album census. Among the additions since our last census in 2011 is this band-signed US release White Album that Tracks sold for $186,000 in late 2013. One of only two Beatles-signed White Albums known!
Please check the lists of US and UK releases and post if you know of any adjustments that need to be made.

UK Release Band-Signed Beatles Albums

What's with the square around the George signature?
I don't know the origin of the box around George, but it appears that the paper is "scored", but not "cut" around his signature.
The signature may have been cut into the lp. What company has look at this and certified it?
The album was authenticated by Frank Caiazzo in 1992.
I do not believe that the signature was cut into the album.
It looked "OK" re condition at large size in negative. Unfortunate, but not "funny" - and not really as deep a score on the right vertical it seems
If your album came from Frank Caiazzo it's already counted in the census. Frank helped me put the original one together.
I bought the album in 1992 but not from Frank, but he did the authentication at the time of purchase.
Frank still counted it if he remembered it and he has an incredible memory. But to be cautious, I'll add it to the census count. I'd rather be high than low.
Please take full photos of the front and back and scan Frank's LOA. You can send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
