A group of framed rare Beatles autographs failed to sell at auction in Grantham this week.

The rare early autograph group from all the “Fab Four” members and inscribed “lots of love from The Beatles” was expected to sell for up to £3,000 at The Grantham Auction Rooms, but did not reach its reserve price of £1,500.

The autographs were obtained early in 1963 when the group had just recorded their first album. They were one of several bands who played a gig in Nottingham at the Elizabethan Rooms on March 7, 1963. The compere for the evening obtained the Fab Four’s signatures in their dressing room.

Auctioneer Colin Young said that although the lot had not sold there had been plenty of interest in the item since the sale and that it could well be sold privately.
