Item A008: An Ultra Rare SIGN Taken off the Apple Records Building in London England in late 1976 !!! Offered is a one-of-a-kind ultra rarity... In late 1976, this sign was removed from the Beatles Apple Records headquarters building in London England. It is extremely similar to the sign shown on the back cover of Ringo'sRotogravure LP. On the Rotogravure back cover, is pictured a doorway entrance to Apple Records Building in London, circa the summer of 1976. The LP was released in September 1976. The sign and entrance was totally covered with graffiti!!! All we know is that this particular fan removed the sign from an entrance to the Apple Records building in late 1976 using a dime to unscrew it. When compared to the sign from Rotogravure(see pic below), the wording and size are the same, but the fonts are just slightly different, thus it is a different sign. Whether or not this sign was used on another entranceway to the building, or used to replace the original sign(assuming it was stolen too) remains a mystery today. The fan is no longer with us, so we only have the story to go by. After the sign was taken in 1976, it was brought back to the US and put on display outside at the fan's art studio for over 20 years. During that time, all the graffiti that was on the sign has nearly all faded white; some graffiti is still readable(see pics below). This sign measures approx 16.5" by 26.5" an seems to be made of metal and masonite. The trim on the edges of the sign has deteriorated over the years. A true Apple Records Rarity!! Serious Offers Only Please!!! From The Lisa Lebow Collection. Price $3,000. or best offer

Item B000: A Beautiful Reproduction Copy of One of the Most Sought After Record Albums by The Beatles: The 1964 Stereo Vee Jay Records The BEATLES "PORTRAIT COVER" or The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage LP !!! Offered is a stereo reproduction of the Beatles and Frank Ifield album that was originally issued in September 1964 by Vee Jay Records VJLP 1085! This particular reproduction was made from an original 1964 Vee Jay Records ‘The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage’ OLD MAN album and cover...so the jacket itself is original from 1964 - meaning the inside cardboard construction is original; the back cover slick is original; the record is original; the only part that has been reproduced is the front cover slick and it wraps around the top and bottom seams, plus the spine and tucks underneath the original back cover slick, just as the originals were made.... very nice!! Care was taken to ensure this reproduction copy has all the printing that the original copy would have: printing on the spine, it says STEREO on the top center plus has VJS 1085 printed on the top right corner. You can see the hand-drawn couch The Beatles are sitting on at the bottom of the front cover. This is a much better alternative than spending $10,000 or even $18,000 for an original stereo copy of this 1964 album.
This is one of the best reproduction copies we’ve ever seen! It's an excellent bootleg copy of a very rare album, plus it’s the rare Stereo Version of the album cover jacket with the record ID number VJS1085 printed in the top right corner on the front slick plus it’s also printed correctly on the spine. The album cover grades Very Good plus or Excellent. It also includes an original VJ1085 record album and the vinyl in OK condition. Once again, the vinyl is graded only Good. You're buying this for the cover; even though the record is original from 1964 and you can play it on your turntable too!
What a great GIFT IDEA for that Beatles Fan who has almost everything! SALES PRICE $350.

Item B001: The Beatles an EXACT REPRODUCTION of the 1964 Mastro Industries BEATLES BANJO !!!
Offered is an exact Reproduction of the 1964 Mastro Beatles Banjo with a nice photocopy of the original Instruction Booklet. The only item that has been altered on this Mastro Banjo is the skin... only the banjo skin has been replaced! Read on....These rare Beatles Banjos were originally manufactured by Mastro Industries in the USA in 1964 who also manufactured several other toy instruments such as guitars, ukuleles, drums and bongos. They were all officially licensed by NEMS Enterprises Ltd in 1964 and sold up to 1966 in stores and by mail order in the USA. Only The Beatles Banjos were made with a special plastics color combination of Red, Maroon & Gold Plastic Parts! All the generic ones were made with white, marbled white, black, and sometimes blue plastic parts.
If you already have an original Beatles Mastro Banjo but it has some cracked or missing parts, you could simply use this banjo to replace those red or maroon plastic cracked or broken pieces as this banjo is 100% intact and it's all in Excellent condition!
This MASTRO BANJO could have originally been a Beatles Mastro Banjo because of the red and maroon plastic colored parts it's made from. All the plastic parts on the piece are 100% original ! The red parts are 100% red plastic! The maroon parts are 100% maroon plastic! The original bridge is 100% maroon plastic too. The ink stamps on the head stock and fingerboard are 100% original... Keep in mind that not all Beatles Banjos made by Mastro had "Beatles Graphics" on the head stock... some simply said "Mastro Banjo" as this one does... plus as shown in several vintage Mastro Industries Beatles promotional pamphlets and brochures. We have simply replaced the banjo skin with an exact reproduction of the original Beatles Banjo skin. The banjo skin is made of thin acrylic plastic material, just like the original, with graphics taken directly from an original Beatles Banjo. They are correct size and color as the original skin was.
There are no cracks in any of the plastic parts on the banjo. You won't be disappointed with this great display item! The strings are original vintage colored plastic strings, except 1 string has been replaced, the clear one. The banjo comes with it's original maroon-colored plastic bridge.

They were officially licensed by NEMS Enterprises Ltd in 1964 and sold up to 1966 in stores and by mail order in the USA. This high quality reproduction set of bongos with box was made from a set of generic Mastro bongos!!! They do come with a set of original Mastro Bongos Instruction Booklet, which is the exact same booklet that came with the Beatles Bongos!! Mastro did not manufacture a Beatles specific Instruction Booklet for the Beatles Bongos; instead they included the generic instruction booklet, which is included in the sale of this set of Bongos. The graphics on the reproduction set was made from scans directly from the Beatles Bongos in the box. The stickers are exactly the same as the originals! The bongos are painted red and are not made of red plastic as the original Beatles bongos were. The box is an exact replica with Beatles graphics applied to the front, sides and top of the box.

Item B004: The Beatles 1964 BALLOON Still Sealed in it's Original Packaging !!! Offered is a Beatles Official Balloon from 1964 made in the USA by United Industries Inc., in Southington, CT. These came in many different colors and this one is orange with black printing. The original packaging has not been opened. The large package says "BLOW UP! A FAB BEATLES BALLOON " . Underneath the Beatles logo is a copyright symbol meaning this balloon was officially licensed by The Beatles thru their USA Licensing company SELTAEB. Inside is the original balloon but we believe the rubber has long since dried up so it's best left still sealed rather than chance the balloon will still inflate. When these items were originally found back in the 1980s, you could actually use the balloons, but now they are probably too old! Still it's a great display item for any Beatles collector. SALES PRICE $50.
