Bob Dylan's jacket brings it all back home for £3,760

A leather jacket worn by the folk and rock 'n' roll legend Bob Dylan was among the star lots at Cameo's The Angels Film Costume Auction, yesterday (May 23).

Dylan can be seen wearing the Jackson labelled jacket in director Martin Scorsese's 1978 film, The Last Waltz.

Better known for his Robert De Niro starring films including Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, Scorsese documented the final concert of Dylan's sometime backing group, The Band.

According to Cameo, the jacket was donated by Dylan to the Woodstock Cooperative and was sold with a signed letter of authenticity from former The Band member Rick Danko, from 1994.

Auctioned online, it attracted bids from collectors, investors and Dylan afficionados alike, pushing its final value to £3,760 including buyer's premium.

Meanwhile, a one-of-a-kind Dylan autograph is also for sale on the collector's market, scribed the printed lyrics for On The Road Again, a track from Dylan's seminal 1965 album Bringing it All Back Home.

Today, Dylan remains one of the world's most sought after signatures - and it's doubly rare to find his autograph on his own sheet music.

More recently, Martin Scorsese directed the Rolling Stones concert film, Shine a Light. You can find our Top Five list of Rolling Stones memorabilia items here.
