On offer is a 10 inch by 8 inch black and white photo signed by the band members of Queen

The photo has been signed by original band members Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. 

Deacon later left the group in 1997 following the death of Freddie Mercury.

The photo shows the foursome standing and sitting in a group pose and is signed by each in blue ink.

This is a surprisngly difficult group signature to find, and a very desirable image.

IAA have put an estimate of €2,500 - €3,500 on the photo and you can follow the auction here.

To give an idea of the rarity of Queen memorabilia a signed photo of the band for the Choice 1975 Night at the Opera press kit sold for $3,597 at RR Auction back in September 2013. That item could well be worth $7,000 today.

In January 2013 RR also sold a Queen signed poster for $3,920. That also featured the autographs of the four original band members
