    Beatles Original Nabisco Rice Honeys Box with Six Sheets of Yellow Submarine Rub-Ons (US, 1969). A Letter of Authenticity from Jeff Augsburger is included. For a very short period in early 1969, Nabisco offered free "Beatles' Rub-Ons" in each specially-designed Yellow Submarine-themed package of Rice or Wheat Honeys. Included with this desirable box are six of the eight sheets of rub-ons (2,3,4,5,6,8). This is a very rare and desirable item for both Beatle and cereal box collectors. The box is bright and sharp with minor creases and bends, Fine condition overall. The rub-on sheets are complete and are in their original packaging, though all have been opened carefully, Excellent condition.

    The text of the signed letter of authenticity from noted Beatle memorabilia expert Jeff Augsburger reads: "This certificate confirms that I have examined in person the Nabisco cereal box pictured on the reverse side and have found it to be completely authentic and original in every way, in unrestored condition. The photo is an accurate depiction of the box, showing wear and slight printing flaws unique to this piece. The colors shown in the photo are slightly lighter than the actual box colors. To the best of my knowledge, this Nabisco cereal box depicting "The Beatles Rub-Ons" was a very limited time offering in early 1969. This box is one of the most valuable and desirable cereal boxes to collectors. I own a reproduction of this box and have compared it to this original, the reproduction is clearly inferior in color, construction and clarity." The reverse of his letter has a color photo of this box.
