Inscribed liner sleeve for a test pressing of Lennon's Rock 'n' Roll

Rare off-white liner sleeve from a test pressing for Lennon's 1975 album Rock 'n' Roll, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint, "To Jan, with love, John Lennon, 75" with a small self-portrait doodle. A retail pressing of the Rock 'n' Roll record has been inserted in the sleeve, which has been handsomely mounted, matted, and framed with the album jacket to an overall size of 34.5 x 19.75. The originally included test pressing of the disc, simply marked "Side 1" and "Side 2" on the labels, has stamper numbers "SK-2-3419-Z5" and "SK-1-3419-Z6" in the matrix, is included separately from the framed display; the original photocopy of the track listing label copy is included. In fine condition, with some creasing to the corners. The record is included. Accompanied by letters of authenticity from Beatles expert Perry Cox and Recordmecca's Jeff Gold, who notes: "This is the only signed John Lennon test pressing we are aware of. Rock 'n' Roll is a highly regarded Lennon album, and the test pressing itself is extremely rare."
