Anarchy reigns as bidders fight over Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen acetate

Anarchy reigns as bidders fight over Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen acetate

A test pressing of the punk rockers' 1977 number one is proving a hit on eBay

An original acetate for the Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen is making a big noise at an online auction.

With less than a day left to go, the leading bid stands above 14,500.

The 10-inch acetate, used as a test pressing for the 1977 hit, was cut at Townhouse Studios in London, having been recorded at London's Wessex Studios in March of that year.

Said to have been played just once by the owner, this is a rare opportunity for investors to own a piece of music history.

Another acetate of the song, made at LTS Recording Studios, sold for 10,766 on eBay in 2006.

The single was released in May 1977, just a month before the Queen's silver jubilee, and made number one in the charts despite being banned by the BBC.

Sex Pistols relics remain popular

Sex Pistols memorabilia can achieve large sums at auction. In 2001 lead singer Johnny Rotten's 'anarchy' shirt achieved 3,995 at Sotheby's while a poster for their Punk Special gig at London's 100 Club doubled its estimate to make 3,055.

Here at Paul Fraser Collectibles we recommend collectors approach eBay auctions with a degree of caution, as the authenticity of pieces cannot always be guaranteed.
