    Tony Sheridan & The Beatles "My Bonnie" / "The Saints" Rare First Pressing British 45 Record, the First-Ever Commercial Record Bearing the "Beatles" Name (Polydor NH 66833, 1962). Released on January 5, 1962, this was the first English pressing of the single previously released by Polydor in Germany (NH 24 673) as by Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers (see lot elsewhere in this auction). The importance to collectors of this first release under the "Beatles" name is significant. They are seldom offered especially like this example of the first pressing (as determined by the "broader" font used and the different style of ampersand). This record was deleted from the Polydor catalog later in 1962 and all stock on hand was stamped "Deleted" on the label. This does not have that designation meaning that it was sold early on. After the Beatles became popular in England with their hit Parlophone releases, Polydor re-released this single in June 1963 to capitalize on that. Push-out center hole insert is still present. EX 7.
