Rare 1960s Beatles / Cavern Club Membership Medallion – Piece of The Cavern when the original Cavern closed down in 1973, the owner, well known Liverpool character Roy Adams had the task of clearing out the office. Roy placed into storage various items which have lay undiscovered until 2008. One item in particular, Roy considers to be historic as far as the Cavern is concerned. It is a disc which was proof of membership in the mid 60s at the Cavern, it hung from a leather lace around the neck. This medallion was introduced for a short time before reverting back to the cards. There were a limited number of these discs. The membership medallion (35mm x 5mm with original leather strap). Note: The medallions were found (the office at the cavern club by the last owner Roy Adams). The Old Membership Medallions are all hand cast and there are slight differences in each, so all medallions have their own unique style.
