The Beatles – Very Rare Autographs Signed During 1969 “Let It Be” Sessions, With Frank Caiazzo Authentication Letter
A Beatles Monthly Book signed in 1969 during the recording sessions for Let It Be, twice by John Lennon, and once each by Paul McCartney and George Harrison. These extremely rare late Beatles signatures have been authenticated by the world’s foremost Beatles handwriting expert, Frank Caiazzo, who’s included letter of authenticity tells the complete story. It reads:
The purpose of this letter is to serve as authentication of the signatures of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. These signatures are found on a “Beatles Book Monthly”, issue number 62 from September of 1968. All have autographed in blue ballpoint pen, with John signing twice–once on the front cover and also again with Paul and George on the color center spread photo–which features a shot of The Beatles taken during their so called “Mad Day Out” in London in July of 1968. These signatures were obtained in January of 1969, outside of Twickenham Studios in the London borough of Richmond upon Thames, when The Beatles were there recording the “Let It Be” album and film project. Beatles autographs from 1969 are incredibly rare and desirable, and especially so for anything from early in the year during the “Let It Be” period.
The Beatles Monthly has been conservation framed, with a glass window on the back displaying the covers. The signatures on the center spread are all clear and unfaded; Lennon’s signature on the back cover is over a dark portion of his cheek, and while clear it suffers a bit from lack of contrast.
Also included is a written appraisal by Frank Caiazzo, dated May 2015, and valuing the signed Monthly at $8,000. With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. An extremely rare set of signatures from the recording sessions for the last Beatles album released.
