A rare original acetate of Bob Dylan's 1965 single 'Like a Rolling Stone,' with hand-written notes from producer Tom Wilson, has sold for $1,624 after 19 bids on eBay.

The single, which was split into two parts in order to accommodate the 10-inch single format, is from so early in the process that it has no labels. Instead, Dylan's name is written on Side A.

The element that likely sent fans into a bidding war, however, is the note from Wilson to Columbia Records A&R executive Kenneth Donald Glancy, who later served as head of RCA Records. Wilson writes: "Ken - This is the Part I and II version of Dylan single. Have edited 6:00 version also. - Tom."

'Like a Rolling Stone,' later included on Dylan's legendary 'Highway 61 Revisited' album, would reach No. 2 on the Billboard charts and remains one of his most-played concert songs. Dylan is currently making a series of concert appearances with Wilco and My Morning Jacket.
