John Lennon memorabilia offers rising values to savvy investors
The market for John Lennon memorabilia is booming, even his toilet is hot property
Paul Fraser Collectibles, Wednesday 25 January 2012
Fifth on Forbes' latest top-earning dead celebrities list, John Lennon has enduring appeal, which is what investors in memorabilia look for when seeking long-term opportunities.
Recent strong auction results are testament to the popularity of John Lennon memorabilia with collectors and investors alike.
Lennon's handwritten lyrics to A Day in The Life made $1.2m at Sotheby's in June 2010, while the former Beatle's "Bed Peace" artwork from his and Yoko Ono's 1969 anti-war "Bed-In" brought £97,250 ($154,000) in November 2011.
Such is Lennon's appeal that more unusual items too can make significant sums. Lennon's porcelain toilet from his house in Berkshire, UK, sold for £9,500 ($14,780) in August 2010.
Of the four Beatles, Lennon's signature is the most valuable.
According to the PFC40 Autograph Index, Lennon's autograph has increased in value from £695 ($1,080) in 2000 to £6,250 ($9,725) today, at the rate of 22.10% pa.
Our experts have obtained a superb rarity: a glossy, colour photograph of Lennon, signed by the star in 1974.
This photograph dates from Lennon's "Lost Weekend", a period of around 18 months following Lennon and Yoko Ono's decision to split.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain John Lennon autographs from the mid-1970s, which makes us all the more excited by this piece.
