    Beatles Pair of Unique Mementos, Bathwater Bottle and Stage Section (UK, 1962 & 1964). There just can't be very many Beatle fans around that can claim to own both these items. Though the Beatles played in Birkenhead several times, they only played at the local YMCA once, on September 8, 1962. Offered here is a 6" x 3.5" x 0.75" plank of wood from that stage, branded as to location, along with a numbered (#0181) Certificate of Authentication. Fine. Unfortunately, the water has evaporated out of this 3.5" tall bottle with a label reading: "St. Albans Rag 1964/ Genuine/ Beatles' Bathwater/ In aid of: Cell Barnes Swimming pool/ for the spastic and mentally handicapped", contained in a nice lacquered wooden box with a photo of the Beatles swimming in the lid, Very Fine. Cell Barnes was a hospital who sold these for £1 to raise money for expansion of their facilities. Also in Fine condition. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
