I’m extremely excited to share a recent acquisition obtained from Frank Caiazzo. This document is dated July 30, 1969, an exceedingly rare year for Beatles signature sets. It unwinds entanglements between the Beatles and the Estate of Brian Epstein. NEMS Enterprises Limited (Nemperor) had certain alleged interests in the Beatles and some of the Beatles' companies (Lennon Books and George's music publishing company Harrisongs), and the Beatles had some interest in some of Epstein's companies. Both sides are ceding their interests to the other side in this legal document. Additionally, the Beatles and their companies are releasing any claims that they may have against Queenie Epstein and Clive Epstein relating to Brian Epstein's management of the Beatles. It is signed beautifully by all four members of the band and also by Brian's brother Clive Epstein, who assumed control of NEMS after Brian passed away, and also signed his mother Queenie, who had an interest in the management company of The Beatles after her son's untimely death. This was signed on a day the Beatles were busy in the studio doing some overdubs and mixing for the Abbey Road album and settled on the playing order of the Abbey Road “Medley” which happens to be one of my all time favorite pieces of Beatles music.

I now have complete sets (all authenticated by Frank Caiazzo) from the years 63 (2 sets), 64, 65, 66, 67, and 69. Hopefully, I’ll add 68 (very rare) and 62 to my collection someday.

Museum worthy item.

Hi Marc

You have a great collection, to state the obvious. You say you need a 1962 set. There is one coming up in the UK that I suspect is real and actually from 1962. The number of people "watching" it already suggests that others agree:

Perhaps the condition isn't good enough for you.

That set is intriguing. I’ve always liked the photo and promo card. I wonder if the back side is that dingy or if it’s just a poor photo of it. 

Hi Marc, lovely item.  I have a rare 62.  PM me
