"Priceless Beatles Record Found..."

"... In Widow's Collection."

The widow of a former Capitol Records executive called record dealer John Tefteller to appraise her late husband's collection. After thumbing through some jazz and easy listening albums, Tefteller found a sealed copy of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which would bring a little interest on the secondary market. Upon further inspection, however, he noticed that the Beatles' faces were not on the cover. The album was one of three or four known to exist with the faces of Capitol Records executives superimposed over those of the band. As the pressing was so limited and only given to executives, Tefteller said that it would be impossible to put a price on the album.
