The Beatles wrote some of their early hits at Paul McCartney's family home

It was the Beatles' first practice space and the site where some of their earliest hits were written - including Love Me Do and I Saw Her Standing There.

The lot was rescued during refurbishment of the building in 1964 by a fan who stored it behind his sofa for many years.

It sold for £5,060 ($7,780) at Dominic Winter Auctions last year.

Other lots in the sale include a silver Harrods box, an oak capture chair and an 11th century Viking broadsword.
