Dear Mike,

While we were cleaning up my aunt's estate we found this Beatles mug in her cupboard. It is in beautiful condition with no chips or cracks and measures about four inches (10 centimetres) tall.

What would a mug like this be valued at?

Jan L., Winnipeg

Dear Jan,

The Beatles were so popular during the 1960s that lots of merchandise was produced with their names and pictures on it. The mug you have was made by Washington Pottery in the U.K., and, naturally, includes pictures of John, Paul, George and Ringo.

Beatles memorabilia is very sought after by collectors in today's market. Your mug, in its condition, would sell for $75 to $100.
