A buyer paid £15,652* for a MINT original, one of the 9 that exist, together with A&M correspondence and proof of provenance, at Wessex Auctions - 1 November 2019 (* including buyers premium). I think this is the most ever paid for this. Was on BBC.

My recollection is, there were only a handful of copies for many years but when A&M closed down (I've just looked the label up on Wikipedia and it ceased operations in 1999) more copies - perhaps 10 - were located and some of the staff being laid off were given one copy each. A friend of mine, a dealer and an expert who had always wanted a copy, was put in touch by a reliable contact and paid £1,000. That seemed to be the going rate at the time - most of these copies were sold immediately. It didn't seem like such a good investment at the time, but clearly it was.

I love the way 52 People really believe they have an Original A&M pressing?!
Considering it's meant to be the Rarest (Most sort after) Punk single in the world,
i find it very hard to believe 52 people own one on here!
Genuine originals have the serrated anti-slip necklace and 7284 written twice on the B-Side runout, one above the other !

"A&M cut ties with the band, breaching their contract and destroying the majority of the 25,000 7″s of “God Save the Queen.” The nine pressings that reportedly remain are obviously extremely valuable due to their rarity, and often make the list of most expensive vinyl records." From Spin a few years ago...Caveat emptor.

Beware A&M bootlegs of GOD SAVE THE QUEEN/NO FEELINGS. The bootleg preeses contains the VIRGIN-ALBUM-VERSIONS in bad quality. ONLY THE 7" of 35TH ANIVERSARY BOX of NEVERMIND THE BOLLOCKS contains the the right versions, if you interested in a repress of this record. The A&M versions of the songs are a bit faster and have a tougher mix than the VIRGIN versions.

Be careful if you're a potential buyer and think you have a genuine original. There are some wicked and clever fraudsters out there. I got taken for a ride in an auction (over 60 bids) and ended up paying £8502 and NOT receiving the correct item from a fraudster called Angela Gale.

This is NOT original. Fake copy with “the serrated anti-slip necklaceand 7284 written twice on the B-Side runout” also exist. Please beware..

What about a copy that does not have the serrated edge but has a large "A" printed on the label?
This type is mentioned on 45cat by someone who was given a copy by Lydon's brother back then.
