The front label is also printed in dayglo colours and states our first four APPLE RECORDS Ltd.3 Savile Row London W.1,

This legendary Beatles APPLE LABEL record company promotional pack of four Apple singles was issued to commemorate the launch of the label in 1968. Each of the seven inch singles comes in its own coloured folder.

Some were presented to the press and promotional companies and these came in a thin and far more common cardboard box, 

However, just a very small amount were housed in a plastic case and were intended to be sent to The royal family, the prime minister , Harold wilson and various high-up dignitaries.

Only a handful were ever made and I wonder how many have survived the 40 odd years.

It makes you wonder how many are left and actually exist today.

This must be one of the finest examples left.    

This copy came from the collection of the late DJ Personality Roger scott who's family sold all his collection of beatles records and memorabilia in sothebys auction house in 1990

 

The plastic case is in exceptional condition to say how fragile it is...Just very light scratches and handling marks but it remains clean and very tidy.

The front slick which states our first four is always prone to wear and dirt, however this is an exceptional example, clean with no scuffs or age marks.     

All four of the folders are in amazing condition stunning bright dayglo colours with no rips,tears,scuffs or handwriting.

The singles looked to have only been played once or twice but are graded as excellent condition as there is some light hairline marks probably caused when the singles have been removed from the pvc pockets. 

The singles are very hard to remove once there in the pvc holders.

 

As far as I'm aware this is only the second plastic our first four presentation copy to appear on ebay in the last 5 years, The last one was from beanos and this copy didn't have the original slick on the front where it states our first four it had been lost many years ago ....so the slick had been copied from a cardboard copy.

THIS ONE IS 100% COMPLETE WITH NOTHING MISSING AND IT IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION

very rare and a very special item would be the crown jewel of any record collection

ONCE IN A LIFETIME!!
