BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- A factory-sealed First State copy of The Beatles’ famously banned “Butcher Cover” mono LP , Yesterday and Today, without a doubt the Holy Grail of vinyl, is expected to bring $30,000+ when it comes up as part of Heritage Auctions Feb. 18-19 Signature(r) Music & Entertainment Auction. “There are likely less than 25 sealed copies of this record in existence,” said Garry Shrum, Consignment Director for Music & Entertainment Auctions at Heritage, “and that’s probably a generous estimate. More than that, we’ve never seen a copy in such great condition, and we sold a ‘Livingston Copy’ of the ‘Butcher Cover’ in 2006 for more than $38,000. That price is, to date, the highest amount ever realized for a piece of wide release, non-autographed vinyl. This may well exceed that.” Many serious collectors
