McCartney letter to Sir Lew Grade-April 6, 1970

Posted on July 17, 2017 at 5:49pm 20 Comments

A handwritten letter to Sir Lew Grade from Paul McCartney on April 6, 1970. This was 4 days before he told the world that The Beatles were breaking up. He's asking for the for the "Deed Of Assignment dated Jan 12th to be sent to him IMMEDIATELY!!! This refers to Beatles royalties. This is a rare inter-office memo...and McCartney signatures from this time period are tough to find. What kind of value would you put on this? Has a letter from Frank Caiazzo. Just asking...Thanks.…
