Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $16,377.03 (includes buyer's premium)


Four stock transfer documents, each signed by a different band member, each one page, 8 x 13, all four stamp-dated July 30, 1969, each assigning or transferring shares of stock. McCartney’s, signed ”Paul McCartney,” assigns the shares to Edelweiss Investments Limited; Lennon’s, signed “John Lennon,” assigns the shares to Daffodil Investments Limited; Harrison’s, signed “George Harrison,” assigns the shares to Cornflower Investments Limited; and Starr’s, signed “R. Starkey,” assigns the shares to Daffodil Investments Limited. The two-sided typed documents also include each band member's home address, as well as a stamp from Triumph Investment Trust, Ltd. and embossed tax seals dated August 13th, 1969. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in part "To find The Beatles signatures on anything from the year 1969 nearly impossible - they're that rare.  These documents relate directly to the complicated business affairs that were happening just as the band was about to break up, making them indeed a part of Beatles history".

These shares were the Beatles' holdings as a result of the sale of NEMS Publishing to Triumph earlier in 1969. Each form indicates a transfer amount of 735 shares to four of the seven investment companies formed on behalf of the band. These agreements represent a decision by the Beatles to transfer an equal number of shares of Triumph stock to the brokerage house Whyte, Brecher, & Gasc Ltd. Each of these transactions was made through the band members' individual investment companies. When these agreements were signed, the Beatles were in EMI Studios putting the finishing touches on their final album, Abbey Road. On the very same day these forms were signed John recorded lead guitar overdubs on ‘Come Together’ and the band completed their first full mix-down on the famous Abbey Road medley. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
