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.
