Item Description

Up for sale folks is an original 1966 Beatles Yesterday and Today T-2553 mono LP. This copy has the legendary butcher cover that was considered highly controversial, and recalled. These are known as second state butcher as they had a new cover image pasted over, and were distributed back out. These are getting harder and harder to find and this is a nice original.
Condition report:
Overall, this is a decent copy. The sleeve shows wear from use and storage. There is a very small one inch split on the top left of the jacket. The title seam has some tears in the lettering and a small missing section on the very top. It shows ring wear and corner wear, and someone had peeled the top layer back inspecting for a butcher cover. The cover grades in at VG. 
The vinyl is poor. Someone had scratched the life out of it and stored it without a sleeve. Record is NOT playable, and due to the rarity, you are buying it for the cover anyway. Comes in a generic white inner sleeve. Labels are free of writing, and are and easy VG+Matrix reads on side 1: T1 - 2553 - G6 #2 (Triangle IAM)  Side 2: T2 2553 - F1 #3 (Triangle IAM)
Folks, this is a great record and would be at the center of most Beatle enthusiasts collections. Due to the rarity and overall condition, I considered keeping it for my own collection. This sells with NO RESERVE. You read the listing, viewed all the pictures, and understand the condition. Bidding on an auction is a commitment to pay. PLEASE do not bid if you don't have the means to pay. Shipping in the US will be done by Fedex, and international orders can go USPS International or eBay global shipping. 
Best of luck, and be sure to ask any questions you may have!
