   The Early Beatles LP-009

ITEM #: LP-009
Description: The Early Beatles — stereo copy, 2nd pressing
Record Label: Capitol
Catalog #: ST 2309
Year of Release/Pressing: 1969
Record: VG++
Jacket: VG+
Price: $25 $20


This is a very nice stereo copy of the sixth US Beatles release on Capitol records. The black and rainbow label does have the "subsidiary" text, so it's not a first pressing from 1965 but it's instead a second pressing from 1969. Except for a small split in the middle of the spine and an obscured catalog # on front (due to a manufacturing misalignment), plus just a little bit of ring wear, the jacket would be NM-.

Matrix / Runout (Runout side A etched): ST-1-2309-W5 #2 O
Matrix / Runout (Runout side B stamped ["#3" etched]): ST2-2309-W1 #3 0

Book value for a NM copy of this version of this release is between $50-100:
CAPITOL (ST-2309 "The Early Beatles").......................................50-100 (1969)
(Stereo. Black label. Has "Subsidiary of Capitol Industries" at bottom.)
  (from the Rockin' Records 2018-2019 Record Price Guide)

...and so that places the value of this copy at about $25-50, at the very least.
