John Lennon's jacket goes under the hammer

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Imagine you had £10,000 to spare...  you could use it to bid for a rare jacket that once belonged to Beatles star John Lennon. Dating from the late 1960s the teal blue jacket, owned and worn by Lennon, is to be sold at auction.

It was once the property of Jo Jo Johns, personal assistant to the Beatles, who worked at the group’s offices at 3 Savile Row in central London from 1968 to 1975. One of her jobs was to clear out Lennon’s house following his 1971 move to America. In the early 1970s she gave the jacket to her friend, Anthony Goddard, in Leicestershire.
