Up for sale at Omega is this signed PPM Lp.  Roger Epperson viewed it and apparently gave it the thumbs up.  Signatures look almost too good to be true? Any other thoughts?

Agreed, however if the signatures are genuine there would likely be another £20,000 or £25,000 to be made with any kind of provenance and a full written COA.  The signatures look great just the big doubt that they aren’t genuine.

Is there a VAT tax on top of that? If so, how much?

£24,000+30%=£31,200, which is over US $38,000. If they're live ink they're real IMO, and I agree with FAB—I think there's an extra $20,000+ to be made at that price. I'd get a Caiazzo LOA before I sold it. It could add $5,000+ to the value on its own.

I agree. We’ll probably see it at another auction house or on eBay with an LOA. 

You guys think a signed please please me is bringing over 50k? No way. Frank sold a hard days night just recently for less than that. 

I presume you are referring to the one that used to belong to the actress Wendy Richards. That was certainly inifitely better than the OP PPM. Much rarer signed LP, great provenance and lovely biro signatures near each signer's respective photo. Richards was a very well known actress in UK television too. The only issue for me would be Paul's inked-in eye. If there had been a funny story behind it (involving the Beatles of course), it would have been another plus point of course.

That’s the one! 

I asked a similar question three weeks ago but got no response.

Such an undated and uninscribed signed LP, totally devoid of provenance, does very little for me. The boldness of the signatures somehow makes it look even more like a "trading commodity".

If you had this on your wall at home and visitors asked you about it what story would there be to tell?

Agree, provenance would add a great deal to its authenticity.

For me having some kind of provenance adds greatly to the appeal of an item and is not just helpful in terms of authenticity. Even knowing that some lucky "so and so" found the LP in a charity shop in "such and such" a place or inherited it from a distant relative (with no further info) adds "colour" to the item even though neither piece of information provides any real additional evidence as regards authenticity. 

The boldness is a huge selling point. There are only 2 to 3 known as I recall. I agree with you, though. Inscribed ddoesn’t bother me one bit. In many cases I like it more. But the difference in value between inscribed and seems to keep growing. 

Agree! Just my opinion but this looks quite unattractive and it does nothing for me either. Almost looks like one of those fakes of which there are thousands for sale on Etsy. The style of the autographs of course seems to be good, but you can never be sure anymore these days. I've seen identical copies of autographs in live ink (black felt tip pen), although not this size. I wouldn't touch these kind of pieces tbh. 

Concerning visitors: they most probably wouldn't have a clue anyway and may think "yikes, what a dirty looking old LP", hahaha. And if someone told them he paid 30k for his, they probably would laugh their heads off. But to each his own, if you like this and are willing to pay this kind of money, no problem!
