I have this "With the Beatles" album I would like to add to the Census.

Thanks,

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

Frank should have noted it on the loa if it were a cut I would think. That being said 1992 was 24 years ago and that was early on in his authenticating career (I believe he lists himself doing this for 29 years)

Hi John,

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 editor@autographmagazine.com.

Thanks!

I have a U.S. released Beatles Abbey Road album signed by all four
Do you mind to post a picture of it?
And where and when did you buy it?
