MEET THE BEATLES T 2047, Mono
by the Beatles John Lennon,Paul McCartney,George Harrison,Ringo Starr
January 20, 1964
This is a super RARE Beatles collectible. Initial research by us revealed that ONLY ONE has ever been listed for sale of this misprint anomaly. If you look at the images supplied you will see that the front cover was pasted on in an UPSIDE-DOWN position during printing. When you hold the record so you can remove record on the right side the record jacket is upside down. If you hold the album so the Beatles head are right side up that opening is on the left which is NOT standard.
Description from internet search- "[This] may be the rarest RAREST 1964 "Meet the Beatles" album ever offered up for auction! YES! Even rarer that the multitudes of pressings of their infamous "Yesterday and Today" Butcher cover! An AUTHENTIC FACTORY ERROR 1st pressing of "Meet the Beatles" with an upside down front slick on the jacket. Released 1964 by Capitol records T-2047 MONO. One can only surmise the circumstances that resulted in this oddity. Was it first off the presses when workers noticed the error? Was it retrieved from the capitol dumpster or tucked under the arm of an employee back in 1964? I don't know but you can see by the photos it was not something that was manufactured later but an authentic factory error from the first pressing in 1964. There are no tell tale signs that anyone has EVER removed and replaced the slick at all. This slick has certainly NEVER been removed! " (Google search)
