Lock of John Lennon’s hair sells for Rs 24 lakh

Dallas: A lock of Beatle’s co-founder John Lennon’s hair that was snipped from his head as he prepared for a movie role, has fetched $35,000 (Rs. 24,00,125).

According to reports, the four-inch lock of hair was purchased by Paul Fraser, a UK based collector of Beatles memorabilia.

The lock of Lennon’s hair was cut by a German barber in 1966 before he started filming ‘How I Won the War’, and is the largest lock of Lennon’s hair ever sold at an auction.

“It was a good size with quite a lot of strands,” Heritage Auction spokesperson Garry Schrum told BBC.
