This rare Sex Pistols record, "God Save the Queen" (1977 A&M AMS 7284 Promo Record), received 37 bids, before it sold on eBay for *$17,179 on October 1, 2011. (**See auction #260857651148 on eBay)

The vinyl record, features the controversial song "God Save the Queen" by the English punk rock band 'The Sex Pistols' which was pressed on an A&M Records label in 1977. Only a small number of copies were pressed before the group left A&M to sign with Virgin Records. The (A&M) records are considered by collectors to be among the most valuable in the UK.

This particular record (sold) was stated by the seller to be one of small number of promo-pressings given to A&M executives prior to the company's closing in 1998.

Another, slightly different Sex Pistols vinyl (a UK 7" cut onto 10" one sided Townhouse acetate) fetched approximately *$23,000 (USD), earlier this year. See Story
