Sex Pistols’ God Save The Queen sells for $14,690
A copy of the Sex Pistols’ unreleased God Save The Queen A&M 7-inch has sold for $14,690 on Discogs, making it comfortably November 2017’s most expensive sale and coming close to eclipsing the record for the most expensive item ever sold on the site.
A mere 25,000 copies of God Save The Queen were pressed before A&M’s Herb Alpert reportedly destroyed the Sex Pistols’ recording contract six days after signing. Only nine of the unreleased A&M single are thought to exist, making it one of the UK’s rarest records, with previous copies selling for up to £13,000.
Genuine originals have the serrated anti-slip necklace and 7284 written twice on the B-Side runout, one above the other. Also of note, runout (Side A label) is AMS 7284A and runout (Side B label) is AMS 7284B.
