(Source: WhatSellsBest.com) - The bidding ended at *$19,672 (£12,629) for this rare vintage Sex Pistols record on eBay, placing it among the highest-priced Sex Pistols memorabilia we've monitored in recent years.

Why's It Rare?

The record, listed as a 35-year-old 7 inch promotional acetate featuring the controversial song "God Save the Queen" and "No Feelings" by the English punk rock band ’The Sex Pistols,’ has an L.T.S. record label that is apparently a substantial rarity. According to the sellers listing; "This is one of only two copies known to exist."

In their early years... The Sex Pistols had an extremely turbulent history with several of their record labels (detailed in the video below). This led to a small number of record pressings before the group would leave one label to sign with another. Some of these (limited pressing) records are considered by collectors to be among the most valuable in the UK.

In 2006 it was reported that another (Sex Pistols/God Save the Queen) L.T.S. record label sold online for $16,000 (£10,766).
