Released in April 1963 and definately a number 1 (for 7 weeks no less) whatever chart you looked at. I have 5 copies on 7″ single, the 3 listed below and 2 more in singles box sets.

First Press

The pictures below are of my first press copy. There are a couple of variations on a first press where The Parlophone Co Ltd at the start of the rim text is in lower case (like mine) or capitals. The matrix numbers on mine are 7XCE 17329-1N and 7XCE 17330-1N and it has an MT tax code. The record itself is in very good condition, playing with the odd bit of feint crackle, but no skips, sticks or jumps. The sleeve would also rate as very good, some ring wear and a sticker with the catalogue number on stuck on it.

Estimated Value : £5

 

Second Press (Green Sleeve)

In March 1976 all the Beatles singles were re released in new picture sleeves. I believe there is no difference at all in any of these pressings but, for the record, mine has the matrix numbers  7XCE 17329-2 and 7XCE 17330-2. The record, just some odd very feint crackle, is in excellent condition whilst the sleeve, some minor ring wear and a little staining at the opening, would rate as very good

Estimated Value : £5

Picture Disc

Released on 11 April 1983 as part of the It Was Twenty Years Ago Today series. Being a picture disc I have never played it but it appears to be in excellent condition.

Estimated Value : £10 – £15
