    The Beatles Portable Phonograph Player with Beatle Silhouettes (Lionel Toy Corp,1964). How often do you see this? The Lionel Toy company, thinking they would get the license, started to produce these phonograph players. When that did not happen Lionel removed one of the images from the inside cover hoping to get around the legal issue. Upon rethinking their position,they decided to stop producing these record players. This seldom seen four speed Spear-tone model 44000 Phonograph Player is one of the coolest pieces of memorabilia. This Beatles edition is more rare than the blue cased from 1964. Portable player with yellow lid and brown base measures approx: 11" by 12 3/4" by 5 1/2" Features 3 Beatles silhouette figures, latch and hinges show some rust but still work. Top of the lid has some wear and staining. Player has not been tested. It is rumored only a few hundred were produced. A Fab example that will display well indeed. From the Connie and Dennis Dailey Monumental Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
