John Lennon's personal stereo butcher cover and original artwork featured in 'Beathology'.<br />

The 'rarest Beatles record in the world' which John Lennon swapped with a superfan for a bootleg tape has emerged for sale and could fetch up to £750,000.<br />
<br />
Determined Beatles fan Dave Morrell met Lennon as a teenager in 1971 and agreed to give him a copy of a bootleg he had of some Beatles BBC recordings in exchange for Lennon's personal copy of the gold dust 'Butcher' cover.<br />
<br />
Not only did Lennon agree but he also signed the front of the cover and drew an original artwork on the blank back before handing over the incredible piece of memorabilia.<br />
<br />
Saavy Mr Morrell later got the cover signed by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
