Lot 12: Autographs of All Four Beatles with MBE Photograph
Magnificent framed display includes all four signatures of Lads from Liverpool. First, is an album page signed by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. Paul himself has added flair “Beatles” at the top. The verso is shown in the clear backed framing and is signed “Bo Diddley 1963” in mint blue ink. This was likely signed at his shows with the Rolling Stones in 1963, their first tour of England. Appearance is mint. Second, is a beautiful “John Lennon” circa 1964 single signature. It is on the verso of a circa Ringo Starr 1964 Eskimo Ice Cream trade card. Has a bit of dirt beside it but the sig is o/w NRMT. Third, is a magnificent 8x10” vintage original wire photo (NRMT) of the Beatles posing with the M.B.E.’s ((Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) after receiving them from Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace. Several previous recipients of the award feel the award is demeaned, and return theirs. Verso shows original Daily Sketch newspaper stamp. Beautiful stuff, framed to overall 19x15”.
