I recently came into possession of an original White Album with the embroidery of The Beatles logo on the cover as well as the serial number in the bottom right.
In addition to that, I have an original US Let it Be album with "Dig A Pony' misspelled on the back as "I Dig A Pony."

They're both in great condition, and the White Album has mint condition pictures and poster in it. 

Are either of these worth anything? (I'm not planning on selling them at all; I'm just curious.)

I'm not sure but they're worth, but they are rare.  Lucky!  My White Album is in pretty rough shape, no serial number in the corner, no poster.

First UK Pressings are very rare, especially Mint. Any UK first pressed or any pressing released during the 60's is worth much. Capitol Pressings (sorry USA) are rarely sought for, even in mint conditions (maybe not).

The lower the seriel number the pricier it is so if you have #000001 then do a jig. Im really not sure about values but a very quick Google Search brought up an MSN page that says

While pristine records and inserts are vital to securing a top price, the numbered sleeve is the main attraction. Copies 1-10 stereo or mono are valued at £7,000, although a Mono version of No 5 sold for £19,000 in 2008. Numbers 11 to 1000 are valued at £1,200 but have fetched more than that, with No 783 (mono) attracting £2,051 this year.

It needs to be a low number so if you have #124873 im not sure it would be that valuable. Having the poster and it being in very good condition wont hinder the price at all tho so keep it safe.

They're both priceless.  They're original pressing of Beatles albums.  Don't think about the monetary value, because if you go and try to sell them on eBay you'll make less than their collector's "value" and you'll probably piss away what little money you make on them.

Instead, why not get nice plastic sleeves for them, and keep them?  Give them to your kids or grandkids when they're older.  But let them be enjoyed until then.

Exactly what I did. Like I said, I wouldn't sell them. Not even for $1000. 

But yeah, ha ha, I keep all my Beatles records in plastic sleeves!
