The Beatles' White Album Goes Under Hammer

An extremely rare copy of the Beatles' ninth studio album the White Album, is going under the hammer at Film and Music Memorabilia auction early next month.

A copy of the White Album, with the serial number '00000007' is being auctioned on March 4 and is expected to fetch upto £5000.

It is rumoured that the first ten copies of the 1968 album were distributed directly to the band, but it is reported that the copy up for sale wasbought by the vendor's parent as a gift at the time of the LP's release.

Inside the packaging of the plain white sleeve, is a poster of the lyrics to the songs, and a set of iconic photographs taken by John Kelley during the autumn of 1968.

Cameo Auctioneers, Fine Art Auctioneers based near Reading, believe this copy of the White Album could be the lowest numbered original mono copy of this album to ever become available for public auction.
