In last month’s auction from John Tefteller’s World’s Rarest Records, Rolling Stones 45s (with picture sleeves) were such a hit that one single, “Heart of Stone,” led the auction by selling for over $1,000.
A copy of “Heart of Stone”/”What a Shame” on London (9725) in mint condition sold for $1,205.00. The rare promo of “Stoned”/”I Wanna Be Your Man” on London (9641) in VG+ condition went for $726 and “Tell Me”/”I Just Want To Make Love To You” on London (9682) for $400 in mint condition. A near mint “Satisfaction” 45 (London 9766, above) with picture sleeve sold for $330. Perhaps it would have sold for more if the sleeve were mint. According to Tefteller, it is one of the hardest Rolling Stones sleeves to get in in mint condition.
