Recently discovered specimen of this extremely rare poster on cardstock is in like new EX-MT condition. Apart from the troubling for the time "Yea Yea Yea" lyric, the graphics intentionally carve an "ice cream" image for the boys from Liverpool. In bright and clean pastel tones, they present a very sanitized, clean look to make sure the Beatles project the proper image. Maybe that's why the product did not do as well, making this this poster is so rare. They were better off going with the "bad boys" look. That's the second reason the rebellious youth loved them so much. The first reason, the music. Marked at bottom "Litho in USA." and "© 1965 NEMS Enterprises, Ltd." 18x26". A lesser specimen sold at auction for $8,125 in 2014. The provenance of this rare poster is amazing. This was recently obtained by by a woman who worked at the local Maine dairy (Hood Dairy) as a teenager. She obtained this as a teenager and kept it ever since.
