The Beatles sold a ton of records. Their evaluation process can be very intricate. They are collectible but fairly common because of their sales volume. Their value can is highly dependent on condition, country of manufacture and pressing. Reissues are almost always worth less than originals. UK imports can be more prized than US Pressings. Remember all Beatles were recorded in the UK, but less were pressed in the UK vs the USA. The main factor is again condition! We have years of experience evaluating Beatles records and other records from the 1960s, 1970s. The best thing to do is schedule an appointment. You can call us at. (480) 626-2436.
