Words cannot adequately describe this listing currently for sale at Gerrard’s Auction Rooms in the UK. I have added the auction description for review.
Rare Beatles Item - The Beatles Complete Autographs Rare Signed First Edition Help LP 1965 John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr With e-COA Appraisal Done In 2014. This is something amazingly rare and special, it is a must for any music fan. It is a first edition 1965 First Pressing LP of The Beatles Help - UK Mono with 2/2 matrix The Gramophone Co Ltd. Parlophone PCM 1255 with flipback sleeve with outlined mono logo in the corner. Matrix nos: XEX 549 2 / XEX 550 2. It comes with the original Emitex sleeve. It has a wonderful story. It was actually found in a shed less than 2 miles from The Cavern club by an old lady. She didn't even realise it was signed by all 4 members of the band - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. It has got the usual wear and tear from LPs of that era but overall the condition is very good. The lady passed away and since then this fantastic LP has been in a private collection. It comes with an electronic authentication certificate done in 2014, it is not known exactly when it was signed but the historian on the appraisal team has it between 1965 and 1970. This comes with the e-COA from 2014.
Same message I received. It’s great when many people from this forum unite to politely inform auction houses (that should know better) that what they are selling is crap !!!
I received this yesterday in my mailbox....
I don't think the photo uploaded, Jim!
Sorry - I misread the reply. I thought you were referring to a different response. Apologies for the confusion.
It looked good to me.... you guys might be jumping the gun.lmao
I believe it was signed when they were high on LSD.
I wish this was an April Fools day joke but despite telling many it was or would be withdrawn it’s still active with a £2000 current bid!!! Time to report the auction house to Trading Standards
Looks like the item has now been withdrawn ... Well done for flagging it, everyone. I wonder if the vendor knew, and if any contact was made with the bidders afterward? I think it was up to nearly £2,000
Yes they told me they were withdrawing it.
