Sought-after fully signed 'Twist and Shout' single

Exceptional original 1963 red-label Swedish Odeon pressing of the Beatles' 45 rpm record single 'Twist and Shout' / 'Boys,' signed on the A-side label in blue ballpoint, "John Lennon" and "Paul McCartney," and on the B-side label, "George Harrison" and "Ringo Starr." In fine condition, with slight warping to the edge of the record. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in part: "These signatures date precisely from the time of the band's late October 1963 'mini-tour' of Sweden, and these are excellent examples from the period." In late October 1963, the Beatles traveled to Sweden for their first foreign tour, playing nine concerts at five different venues from October 25-29th. A superior fully signed single boasting four ideal, crisp signatures of the teenage idols.
