It was the Beatles' first practice space and the site where some of their earliest hits were written - including Love Me Do and I Saw Her Standing There.

The lot was rescued during refurbishment of thebuilding in 1964 by a fan who stored it behind his sofa for many years.

It sold for 5,060 ($7,780) at Dominic Winter Auctions last year.

Other lots in the sale include a silver Harrods box, an oak capture chair and an 11th century Viking broadsword.
