The Beatles Yesterday And Today Album 1966 T-2553 Mono LP (Butcher Cover, Rare). The vinyl is in near mint condition, tested and it plays clean. The Butcher Peeled cover is in very good condition.Please see the photos above the description for details and condition. The original LP sleeves for Yesterday and Today were assembled at Capitol's four US plants situated in different cities: Los Angeles, California; Scranton, Pennsylvania; Winchester, Virginia; and Jacksonville, Illinois. Numbers designating where the covers originated were printed near the RIAA symbol on the back; for example, stereo copies from the Los Angeles plant were designated "5" and mono Los Angeles copies were marked "6". Mono copies outnumbered stereo copies by about ten to one, making the stereo copies far more rare and valuable to collectors. Capitol initially ordered plant managers to destroy the covers, and the Jacksonville plant delivered most of its copies to a landfill. However, faced with so many jackets already printed, Capitol decided instead to paste the replacement cover over the old ones. The new cover had to be trimmed on the open end by about 3 mm (1/8 inch) because the new sheet, known as a "slick", was not placed exactly "square" on top of the original cover. Tens of thousands of these so-called'trunk covers' were sent out. As word of this maneuver became known to the public, owners of the altered cover attempted, usually unsuccessfully, to peel off the pasted-over cover, hoping to reveal the original image hidden beneath. Eventually, the soaring value and desirability of UN-pasted over'butcher covers' spurred the development of intricate and complex techniques for peeling the'trunk cover' off in such a way that only faint horizontal glue lines remained on the original cover. Any product you return must be in the same condition you received it.
