    Description

    Beatles Yesterday and Today Third State Stereo "Butcher Cover" LP (Capitol ST2553, 1966). The pasteover "Trunk Cover" has been peeled to reveal the censored "Butcher Cover" on this copy of the 1966 U.S. release. The peeling process is laborious and can result in a barely-presentable album cover. Not the case here; this is one of the nicer Third State covers we've seen. First bonus: it's a Stereo version which is considerably rarer than Mono. Second bonus: the original Sears Roebuck and Company outer sleeve accompanies it, still bearing its "$2.98" sticker. Orange inner sleeve, East Coast pressing (#2- Scranton). A great piece for display. A few minor staple or pin holes at upper right edge. Condition: EX 7/ MT 9. From the Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.

    More Information:

    Possessing a Beatles record collection so astounding we've never seen its equal, Stan Panenka is a name known by virtually every serious Beatles collector. Though his first Beatles record was Hey Jude, bought in 1970, it wasn't until 1990 with his purchase of a copy of the Decca single "My Bonnie" that Stan began seriously collecting high-end American Beatles vinyl. Since then, his collection has grown to colossal proportions, in terms of both quantity and quality, making it quite possibly the greatest collection of United States-pressed Beatles records ever known. A large part of what makes this collection so important are his condition standards, which are stringent even among high-end dealers. He's never bought an album that wasn't at least Near Mint, bringing a "just-left-the-pressing-plant" quality to nearly every item in this incredible accumulation. As one of the preeminent experts in American Beatles records, Stan has written well-received price guides on Beatles vinyl, and is a walking treasure trove of information on the subject!

    Heritage is ecstatic to bring you this, the first taste of the absolute finest Beatles record collection ever viewed by our specialists, with more to come in November's auction! Here is your chance to own pieces of this historic collection!
