Item Description
One of the most inventive Beatles products from 1964. By Clevedon Confectionery Ltd. of England. The display box is 5x10x2.5" deep. Has die-cut lid (but not fully separated along perforations) w/caricature image of the band playing. Portrait images appear on right/left sides. Front panel lists six songs w/music notes and these are "Love Love Me Do, Can't Buy Me Love, She Loves You, A Taste Of Honey, There's A Place, Thank You Girl." Bottom center of lid has minor, thin .25" trace of original tape residue staining as originally sealed. Front two corners have neatly done split repair to interior and only noticeable upon close inspection. Box retains a totally bright, clean and fresh appearance. Tight and VF. Box contains 35 of original amount of 36 pieces of candy that were originally sold for 10¢ each. Each is designed like a record w/sleeve. All sleeves have the same design which includes band name and list the same songs that appear on the display box. These are 4.5x5". Each contains a 4" round licorice disc that looks like a small record and each has a 3.5" paper "Record Label" w/photos. There are six each for the individual members and five featuring the full band (box is missing just one "Band"). All also have the cellophane insert sheet that lays over the candy/labels. Typical and unavoidable trace of aging to the sleeves and labels but all remains complete and clean. Candy has hardened but is all intact, none broken. Old store stock, as nice as these can be found, all is Exc. for this item. From the Carl Lobel Collection.
