Default Wrap it up

When the Beatles, or at least John Lennon used the harmonica Brian Epstein made an agreement with German based harmonica manufacturer Hohner.
Part of the deal was a harmonica set starring the Beatles. What did this set contain?

I did some research and found out that, on the packaging, the signatures below Paul and George were switched.

On the Hohner website, they said the set contained:

Harmonica & box on a pictured display card. Each kit contained two top Beatle song hits, a basic harmonica instruction chart and a signed photograph. Only the box has "The Beatles faces on it." The Harmonica is a generic Hohner.

Other places generally say:

Hohner Harmonica, Beatles Harmonica Box and Music Book/Header Card, and the plastic blister bubble that held the Fab 4 harmonica & box to the booklet.

And on the first version, George and Paul's signatures were switched.
