Beatles Cord Belt (USA) 1964

An original Beatles red/white cord belt, c' 1964, with original Dame Belt & Bag (USA) label attached. TAt either end of the belt are metal caps to which Beatles medallions would have been affixed but these are absent.

 

This item was acquired in 1998 from John Fenton, ex-director of SELTAEB. SELTAEB ("Beatles" spelt backwards) acquired control for The Beatles merchandising from NEMS in 1963, Brian Epstein agreeing to a 90:10 income split in SELTAEB's favour. When "Beatlemania" took hold & the full extent of The Beatles merchandising potential became clear, Epstein & The Beatles endeavoured to re-negotiate. Although a subsequent revision was agreed, years of legal wrangling followed & it is conservatively estimated that The Beatles lost up to $100m in income.
