Auction Description

BEATLES: With The Beatles, UK Parlophone PCS 3045 1963 LP. Ultra rare 1st pressing with mid-size stereo logo in upper right corner on front cover. First copy I have ever had of this issue. Perfect vinyl itself is the very 1st UK stereo pressing with 'Parlophone Co' rims, 'Recording First Published 1963', Jobete credits & KT tax code. Please see labels for details. 

In short, this is the VERY 1st UK STEREO pressing with the hyper rare mid-size logo stereo cover. These covers were produced around 1964 and were issued with already pressed UK 1st pressing LPs. -2, -2 first pressing matrixes (none earlier). 2 RM, (void) GT mothers/stampers.

VINYL is absolutely unbelievable MINT(-), played once or twice, in all aspects near perfect. Plays with perfect Nr MINT audio. Dream condition vinyl!!! One side has one barely visible spindle-mark, other side has one, or possibly two. Surfaces shine and gleam like new. In short: unbeatable!!!

COVER is EXCELLENT++, MINT- aside from a 2 cm spot on upper spine where the lamination has cracked.

Comes with EXCELLENT EMITEX inner!!!

Good Luck – and check my other nice Beatles Lps this time around!!!

*** UK Buyers, please choose the 14 £ (signed for) shipping option. Rates are below my actual cost.***  


  • MINT- is superb, almost like new. No marks, scratches, clicks, noise, or anything else.
  • EX is also VERY nice, 2-3 light marks perhaps, no disturbing noise, great sound quality.
  • VG+, a nice player, but probably has some visual impairments, and some clicks or light noise in places; always see the individual description.
  • VG: Rarely put of for sale, an ok copy, but always see the individual description.


I play-grade parts of or whole LPs to determine the actual sound-quality of the item. Palygrading is done on a quality system with an Linn LP12 as the main source.


I SHIP IN BAND NEW CRUCIFORM shipping boxes with stiffeners & extra corner protection always added. .The boxes are slightly bigger than the normal LP-size, thereby providing good protection of corners and edges. I remove LPs from sleeves, in order to prevent seam-splits on transit. 

IF YOU HAVE INDIVIDUAL WISHES regarding shipping, I will always do my best to coorporate.

THE SHIPPING COST to your country? Use shipping calculator. Shipping prices are set for each LP individually, set below the actual shipping cost for as single LP due to the steep prices in the Danish Postal System. If you buy an expensive LP, 100+ GBP, I'll in most cases require 'registration' of parcel, and this costs 8 GBP extra. This extra cost will show automatically if you look at a 100+ GBP LP.

AUCTIONED items - wait for invoice after winning it!

IF YOU BUY MULTIPLE LPs, wait for invoice, I'll adjust the total shipping amount accordingly. You will never pay more than the actual shipping cost, and often less.


  • PAYPAL (no fees)
  • BANK TRANSFER (ask for details)


All items are garuanteed, and in case of any dissatisfaction, REFUND will promptly be given upon receipt of item in same condition. CHECK my feedback to feel reassured.

PLEASE NOTE that the vinyl is TOTALLY UNMARKED - they light marks mentioned are spindle marks on labels - SORRY if this caused any confusion. Vinyl is absolutely perfect, without doubt the cleanest original STEREO pressing I have ever laid eyes on!!! Good Luck!
