This was originally part of a lot that was sold by charterhouse auctioneers in December 2010. The following is taken from the charterhouse website: Charterhouse have been instructed to sell an important collection of personal rock 'n roll memorabilia relating to the Beatles, The Who, Paul McCartney and Wings in their two day auction of collectors' items on Thursday 16th & Friday 17th December. The collection, estimated at over £20,000, has been formed by Howie and Sheila Casey from the 1960's onwards." Commented Richard Bromell. "Both Howie and Sheila have been professional musicians for more years than they care to remember, and have decided that now is the right time to pass the collection over to a new generation of enthusiasts."
