Beatles autographs hidden for 56 years sold for £4,200

A set of Beatles autographs discovered in a Wrexham cupboard have sold at auction for £4,200.

The signatures had lain hidden from the world for 56 years because the owner did not want to expose them to light.

The 72-year-old retired secretary, who did not want to be named, met the band after seeing an early gig at the Town Hall Ballroom, in Whitchurch, Shropshire.

“I’m chuffed to bits by the result,” she said after the sale.

Auctioneers Hansons had expected them fetch between £2,000 and £3,000.

“Someone offered to buy the autographs off me for £100 about 20 years ago,” she said.

“I’m so glad I said no.”
