A rare copy of a Beatles LP signed by all four band members has finally been sold for £12,000 at an auction in Sussex.
Chris Collins from Eastbourne and his sister Liz Chambers from Worthing initially turned down a £12,000 bid for a copy of the album, 'Please Please Me', a report said.
They had hoped to get £15,000 for the LP, which was given to their late father during a drinking session.
But the siblings have now accepted £12,000 from private buyers. The album was signed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr after they used it as a drinks coaster during a card game in 1963.
It was even withdrawn from sale after failing to reach its £15,000 reserve price, but auctioneer Paul Campbell said, "The record has now sold for a hammer price of £12,000, to a private buyer."
