In 1964 Hohner tried to ride the wave of Beatlemania by producing a "Beatles" harmonica. However, by the time the Beatles reached the shores of America they had stopped using the harmonica in their performances. If you look carefully you can see that the box has the wrong photos over Paul McCartney's and George Harrison's signatures. Later editions of the box corrected the mistake. In 1964 this harp sold for $2.98. Hohner only packaged a generic harmonica in the Beatles boxes so there was never really a special Beatles harmonica.
