Rare Beatles Album Sells For $175,000
Sellers RR Auction, who'd set a reserve of $10,000, say the record was taken into the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay in September that year by a young porter who worked there.
In a letter written in 1985 he explained: "To my and everybody's amazement, the Beatles stayed at the Atlantic for a few days while they were filming Magical Mystery Tour. The manager told all the staff who worked at the hotel not to bother or ask them for their autographs
"I thought it was a good idea to take something back and have it signed. I sneaked the album into work up my top as I didn't want the manager to see." more.
