rare Beatles vinyl, don't know the value!
« on: April 24, 2008, 09:42:11 PM »

I have an original (I think) vinyl copy of Introducing the Bealtes. I read about it on wikipedia, and the copy I have is the rare first edition with Love Me Do and PS. I Love You.. apparently later versions of this album do not have these two tracks, for legal reasons. My copy is also Stereo and according to wiki, it's one of only 2,000 copies. The track listing is also present, and apparently in some versions it's blank.

It looks very similar to this:


except there is no white label at the top. It is in fact Stereo however. And I'm almost positive it's not a counterfeit, the album has been in my grandfather's attic since anyone can remember.

Would anyone be so kind as to give me an estimate on its value? The record is in good condition and all that. But I can't find a solid figure anywhere.

If this is the genuine article, then it could be worth around USD7000. Check out this site:

Beware though, that this is possibly the most counterfeited album in history. When you say it has no white label at the top, do you mean that it doesn't have the white strip with 'Stereophonic' in it? If so, it sounds like someone combined the mono front with the stereo back. Which would make it a fake.

Could you perhaps takes some pictures and post them here. The front, back, and labels?

Sounds like ZoloftSmoothie has a fake, to me. Hope he/she come back with some pics.
