Beatles Head Scarf (USA) 1964

An original Beatles triangular blue/black cloth head scarf with leather trim, manufactured by Dame in the USA, c' 1964. The scarf bears images of The Beatles heads & facsimile autographs. This example carries the original double-sided price ticket with printed "Seltaeb" text. Slight scuffing to leather trim. Both sides of the label shown.

 

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.
