Lock Of John Lennon's Hair Fetches Big Money At Auction
It was purchased by UK collector Paul Fraser at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas. Heritage Auctions director Gary Shrum tells the BBC: "This is the largest lock of John Lennon's hair ever offered at auction and this world record price is a lasting testament to the world's more than 50-year love affair and fascination with Lennon and the Beatles."
Other Beatles items sold at the auction include a signed head-and-shoulders 'before shot' portrait of Lennon, taken prior to the haircut, which sold for $2125. A photograph of the band signed by all of the Fab Four went for $42,500, while an unused ticket for the band's first US concert in Washington DC in 1964 sold for $30,000. Read more - here.
