Beatles jigsaw puzzles

Jigsaw Puzzle Group (NEMS Enterprises, Ltd. 1963). This is no. 4. 

Looking for something special for a Beatle fan's birthday? Forget about records, how about one of these original vintage 1963 jigsaw puzzles? They come in a variety of four.

The back of the box displays all four variations 

Easy to make, too - it's only 340 pieces! Each puzzle measures approximately 11" x 17" when assembled, and makes for a fine display when framed. The artwork is attributed to Walter Howarth.

It's not easy to find the box in great condition
They may prove to be slightly expensive though, although more so in the USA than in the UK. Of course, if you should come across one, make sure to count the pieces. Otherwise, your friend may be in for another surprise after having (near) completed it.

No 4 - completed? Or a new search begins...
No. 3.


No. 2 and No. 1.


Of course, if your friend is a completist, by presenting him with one of these you'll be sending him on a quest for the other three versions to complete his collection. And if he's a googler, his quest will at one point or other land him here on this page.
No. 1 - Success!
There's also supposed to be a picture card in the box, showing the complete picture. This may be harder to come by, as it may have ended up in a scrap book at the time. It's not in your box? Sorry I ruined your day.
