Beatles, The/2 sided Beatle card

I was reading this string of questions and answers... and here is an answer: the card is not from a magazine, Topps Beatles Bubble Gum, and neither from a fan club as was suggested.  The card shown is one of two cards made (two cards with one of each Beatles head shot on each of the four sides) for insertion into a girl's Beatles vinyl wallet, circa 1964, and manufactured by RAMAT Co. & Ltd, London.  The snap-strap wallet came with accessories, nail file, mirror, etc. and came in various colors.  While many wallets did not survive the ages, many of these two-sided cards were inserted into fans' scrapbooks and Beatles card collections.  Hope this helps.
