George signs a copy of Meet the Beatles for a pilot

Original USA issue of a Meet the Beatles album signed on the back cover in black felt tip, “George Harrison.” Complete separation along spine, partial separations to top and bottom edge, several tack holes to top edge, scattered surface loss to back cover, and scattered moderate wear, soiling, and rubbing to both covers, otherwise very good condition. The record is included. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL and Tracks, as well as a 2009 letter of provenance from a previous owner which states, ‘The George Harrison signature on this Meet the Beatles LP was obtained by a pilot of a private airliner about twenty years ago. I acquired the piece from the pilot’s relative, who mentioned that he [the pilot] had flown George on several occasions.’ A bold signature on an original 1964 album issue! RR Auction COA.
