Surely, this is the most expensive photo by The Beatles ever sold at auction. Indeed one of the finest Beatles signed photo in existence. Signed in 1965 on Balmoral Island in The Bahamas.Sold…Continue

"No, I didn't know of this thread until now. However, I haven't seen the signed magazine in person and, therefore, haven't been able to examine the autographs. In other words, my reply was mainly that I…"

"Yes, I did write a LOA for the Beatles signed album that's discussed above. The LOA was written after the GHRR auction; meaning after the autographs were already authenticated by REAL and JSA. "

"OK, their rules say their BP is 20%, but add 3% if you pay by card. I haven't bought from them so I didn't know they added it upfront. "

"Steve Cyrkin, Admin When I get the invoice, the BP is at 23% with the opinion to lower it to 20% if paid "in full with cash, check or money order"."

Steve Cyrkin, Admin replied to Alexander Bitar's discussion $146,000 for a Beatles signed photo!
"They add 3% if you want to pay by credit card, like most auction houses, they don’t subtract it."

a pug called eva replied to Alexander Bitar's discussion $146,000 for a Beatles signed photo!
"That would have had to have been some buyer's premium - ca. $100,000 by my reckoning - if the numbers 1-2-3-FAW quoted are correct. I doubt that an auction house would bother to adjust it's results for such type-of-payment or fast payment…"

"1-2-3-FAW Steve Cyrkin, Admin    Iconic Auctions offers a 3% discount on the buyer's premium if the buyer pays "in full with cash, check or money order". I've done that several times. I assume that was the case…"

a pug called eva replied to Alexander Bitar's discussion $146,000 for a Beatles signed photo!
"I don't think that exchange rates could be a factor as the auction was in US $ and payment would have to be made in that currency. Ultimately, $3,000 is neither here nor there in relation to ca. $150,000.  "

"Thank you for clarifying !!"

Steve Cyrkin, Admin replied to Alexander Bitar's discussion $146,000 for a Beatles signed photo!
"You can only bid at Iconic in 10% increments so the top bidder didn't back out. It may have been sold to someone outside the US, and the difference in price was due to the dollar being worth less against that currency when payment was made,"

Eric Keith Longo replied to Alexander Bitar's discussion $146,000 for a Beatles signed photo!
"At least it was not signed in B/W! I love at least 3 of these - the colored inks are great!"

Alexander Bitar replied to Alexander Bitar's discussion $146,000 for a Beatles signed photo!
"I honestly haven't thought about that, but I agree they lack "personality". I think there's a possibility that the buyer would also have the photo graded and encapsulated by PSA, which would make it even less alive. I've…"
