IRON MAIDEN: Rare Japanese Promo Fetches More Than $3,000 On eBay

An Japanese IRON MAIDEN “2 Minutes To Midnight” seven-inch promotional EP was sold on eBay for $3,350. The EP was reportedly issued as a “special DJ copy” and is considered by collectors to be one of the rarest MAIDEN records of all time.

The “2 Minutes To Midnight” EP — which is said to be one of only five Japanese vinyl seven-inch promos — has a white label with a color sleeve front and a Japanese one-sheet. It was listed in “very good condition” and was sold in an auction that drew 16 bidders before closing on October 21.
