A copy of ‘God Save the Queen’ sold for thousands at auction

A rare copy of the Sex Pistols‘ single ‘God Save the Queen’ on vinyl fetched £13K at auction last week.

As NME reports, the record was described by the auctioneers as “a superb copy of one of the rarest and most sought after records in the world. Contained in original A&M sleeve, and within card sleeve with A&M Records sticker.”

The record went under the hammer at Wessex Auction Rooms at Westbrook Farm in Chippenham last Friday (November 1) and was expected to fetch between £12,000-£15,000.

The single was originally recorded for A&M Records in 1977. The label dropped the band before it was released and most of the copies were destroyed.
