In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the original recipient, in part: "I was with a small group of girls in Sheffield by the venue and someone said that the Beatles were staying on the Grand Hotel, which was quite close by. We went to the hotel and just walking in to find the group sitting in the lounge having a coffee. The hotel manager asked us to leave but took our autograph books which were signed by the Beatles and handed back to us."
