Beatles Dame Belt Headband 1964

An original Beatles solid cloth headband (red/black) with The Beatles faces & facsimile autographs covering the entire surface & with elastic band to reverse. This item was maunfactured by Dame Belt & Bag (USA), c' 1964. It remains in it's original plastic bag with the original Dame Belt & Bag price sticker attached. This item has never been used & remains in mint condition.

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.
