    The Beatles Two Pairs Of Rare Sunglasses By Filtral (Germany, 1966) Plus Original Vinyl 45 With Ad. The first pressing of the "Paperback Writer" / "Rain" single issued in Germany, May 1966 (Odeon O 23210) featured a picture sleeve with a color photo of the Beatles on the front, and an advertisement for very modish "Beatles Style" sunglasses on the back. Manufactured by the venerable German optical company Filtral, the translated text of the advertisement reads in part: "A hit for the Beatfan. Spirited, young, fascinating!" Issued in both black and white frames with greenish glass lenses and metal reinforced arms with five barrel hinges, these German-made glasses are extremely high quality eyewear, and will still turn heads 50 plus years after their introduction. Included are one pair of white and one pair of black glasses, both measuring 5.5" wide, with the model name "BEATLES STYLE" embossed in gold on the right temple arms. In unworn condition with minor scuffs to the frames, some dust on the hinges and lenses consistent with age and handling. Also included the original issue 45 and picture sleeve with ad. The picture sleeve has wear and some staining. We can't stress enough how rare these items are to find. A major addition to your collection. From the Connie and Dennis Dailey Monumental Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
