Original 100% authentic still factory sealed 1st West Coast, Los Angeles, Hollywood pressing plant release 2nd State Paste-Over Monaural Butcher Cover. The paste-over “Trunk” slick with a vivid beautifully preserved print contains a perfectly visible Ringo’s sweater “V” neck along with the texture of the Butcher cover underneath. The slick is so clear that one can even slightly see Ringo’s Head, above the “V” neck, and his black pants at the bottom of the right corner under a strong light source. The shrink wrap doesn't have any splits or tears and contains two breathe holes on the right of the front cover, along the mouth. It's extremely hard to find a copy of the 2nd State Monaural Butcher Cover in such a superb mint condition. If you look carefully, you can also see a small piece of the original Butcher cover sticking out from beneath the paste-over slick at the top left corner, next to the Capitol Records logo, which you can see on one of the photos. The back cover has a RIAA 6 factory designator at the bottom right corner, identifying this very early copy as a Los Angeles, Hollywood pressing plant issue. This copy has the original Capitol Records T-2553 Mono catalog number black label with a multicolored spectrum ("Rainbow") band along the label's edge without the "subsidiary" print. You can see on the photos an original yellow Capitol Records "Capitol 66 Sound Great!” paper inner sleeve visible through the intact shrink wrap at the mouth of the cover. Amazing copy, very early 1st pressing of the 2nd State Paste-Over Monaural Butcher cover in a factory sealed condition, which rarely comes across at an auction without a reserve price. The listing includes the vintage scan copies of Capitol Records original documents, relating to the Butcher artwork situation and its controversy, a Capitol memo from Joe Sobeck, Capitol’s distribution manager in Boston, describing in all of the details the destruction of the original 1st State Butcher Covers (dated June 28, 1966), a letter from Capitol Records’ press and information services manager Ron Tepper that was sent to record reviewers (dated June 14, 1966) and finally, a newspaper clipping from The Boston Globe with the headline “Beatles Make $250,000 Goof”, which describes the recall of the controversial Butcher covers and how Brian Epstein, the manager of The Beatles submitted the original artwork to Capitol Records (dated June 25, 1966)


CONDITION:

COVER - MINT (FACTORY SEALED) Beautiful very clean cover with a rigid spine, containing a fully readable text, and wear and scuff-free edges. The back cover contains a vivid sharp text with some very light “fading” at the bottom left corner and barely noticeable age discoloration along the mouth.

VINYL - MINT (FACTORY SEALED)


ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS! USPS can no longer accept or deliver international mail temporary to several countries due to the service impacts. Please check whether your country is on the list of temporary service and guaranteed-delivery suspensions. Additionally, please take into consideration that the disruption of air mail schedule causes significant delays, which affect the expected delivery date declared by eBay and USPS. From our side, we guarantee the prompt shipping of the item within 24 hours after receiving payment .

Please pay attention that we DON'T ship to Russia and Germany. No exceptions. We'll immediately cancel the transaction if our policy conditions are violated. Sorry about that.

POLICY:

Realizing how important it is to secure the safety of the item you've paid your money for, I'll put my best effort into packing the records as best as possible, triple boxing them into the specialized professional boxes, with the two outer boxes having a special construction with extended cardboard on the edges to prevent the record covers' corners from getting damaged during the transit, and will also put the vinyl outside of the cover (of course, unless it's a sealed record) to prevent the splitting. I always try responding to the messages, but please, before sending me a message, make sure that the answer to your question isn't included in the description. I'll use my right to block a buyer, who doesn't correspond to my idea of politeness, culture and respect toward each other. If you want to participate in my auction, please be honest and positive, and I'll be mutual with you. I'll remove the bids of a buyer with zero rating, unless he contacts me prior to placing a bid.
