Default Butcher cover on Antiques Roadshow

I love the Antiques Roadshow, but I made a special case for watching it this week because the previews showed a Yesterday & Today butcher cover.

I just saw it--a true first state butcher cover, totally mint condition. The surprisingly clueless owner bought it for about $3 at Sears the ONE day they sold the album before it was recalled. It was valued at $10,000-$12,000. Lucky her!

I caught the end of this too. I'm kind of surprised, I thought mint 1st state stereo butchers went for around $20K or $25K.

Actually, that high price is for sealed copies, so the $10K should be about right. I was watching a 1st state stereo butcher HERE on eBay for like $8,500, and it didn't get any bids.

I'm really surprised nobody bid on that one. Nice shots of the seller's couch though. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Last time I was in London visiting family and friends, I went to the Beatles store in (I think) Baker and they had a copy of the Butcher Cover for sale there, behind the glass, at 4,000 pounds!!! (what's really wild is to know that, had I had the money I would have bought it in the wink of an eye!!!)

That eBay auction isn't for a 1st state Butcher cover. It's just a expertly peeled 3rd state. I can tell this because there is a small amount of glue residue on the top left of the cover.

As for pricing, the $25,000 price is for a still sealed stereo Livingstone copy of the LP with the accompanying letter. A normal 1st state stereo in the shrink is about $10,000-15,000 and mono 1st states in the shrink are $8,000 - $10,000.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">4,000 pounds? Sorry, but if that's the same one I saw when I was there then that's an absolute rip-off. The one I saw was a fantastic peel, but peels just as great can be obtained on eBay for less than 1 thousand.
