John Lennon's handwritten lyrics to the song "Nowhere Man" fetched almost a half a million dollars during an auction at Christie's on Tuesday. 
The winning bidder came up with $455,000 for the prized rarity.  This was well beyond the expected sale price of between $80,000 and $100,000. 
The Lennon collectable wasn’t the only big ticket item at the auction.  Magician David Copperfield conjured up $231,500 for the Best Director Oscar won by Michael Curtiz for the classic film "Casablanca”.
