Lot 2040: A 1966 BMI citation presented "in recognition of the great national popularity attained by Yellow Submarine written by John Lennon, Paul McCartney." Citation is signed at the bottom by the president and vice-president of Broadcast Music, Inc. Tack holes to edges and a uniform shade of mild toning, otherwise fine condition. The gold foil seal is crisp and intact and retains its purple ribbon. Although the single 'Yellow Submarine' hit number one on every major British chart, it only reached number two in the United States. However, it sold 1,200,000 copies in America in the four weeks after its release and earned the Beatles their twenty-first US Gold Record award, beating the record set by Elvis Presley.
