Lot 608: Sought-after The Beatles Yesterday and Today stereo 'third state' butcher cover. This 'third state' version features the 'butcher' cover, the previously affixed 'trunk' cover pasteover having been carefully removed from the album jacket to reveal the butcher cover underneath. Removably corner-mounted, matted, and framed to an overall size of 19.75 x 20.5. Edgewear with a small split to the bottom edge, and some adhesive residue along the bottom, otherwise fine condition. The record is not included. Within days of releasing this miscellany of previous hits, Capitol recalled all copies in response to retailers' negative reactions to the original macabre cover image. The recalled copies were 'retrofitted' with a new pictorial flat, pasted over the first featuring an innocuous image of the boys posed around a steamer trunk. The stereo albums are much rarer than their mono counterparts. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 467 Wednesday, 13th January 2016 Estimate: $800-1200
