Well, I'm sure you know that the White Album records, when released, had numbers printed on them, so 337 would have been one of the first few. Every number is one-of-a-kind, so 0000337 might be as rare as 1000337, but 0000337 is probably worth more.

The only question I have here is:
Has anybody actually bought or sold a copy of the White Album based on what number was printed on it?

I had a copy of the 30th Anniversary CD, it had a number on it. I sold it after I bought a copy of the remastered white. But don't ask me what number was on the CD. The owner of the used CD/Record store I sold it to didn't even make the number an issue.

CD's are of no value or interest to anyone collecting rare or hard to come by items since they can be copied identically. But to answer your question, yes. Last year I saw #00000005 vinyl sell for an excess of $30,000.

Does it matter the number? Music is the same.

In this instance, this is a mono copy. The music isn't the same. And collectors pay as much attention to the packaging as the music. This is a rare album, but it's incomplete. I wouldn't have paid what the buyer did for this album. But if the vinyl is in good shape w no skips, noise, or distortion, it's a very nice acquisition.

Actually, that may be an ironic comment.

I have started reading "Beatles For Sale On Parlophone Records" by Bruce Spizer and Frank Daniels. On page 268:
Quote:
Apple and EMI realized the prestige associated with low numbers, so the was some duplication. Tony Bramwell recalls there being four sets of the first 20 numbers. There may have been two distinct set of stereo covers with the below 20 - one set having the standard "No." prefix found on nearly all covers (No. 0000018 confirmed, and the others with numbers preceded by a [large] dot (0000007 and 0000010 confirmed). No UK mono covers have been found with a dot preceding the number.
There are photos of these serial numbers. The "dot" is larger than the zero (which is why I inserted "large" in the quote above).
