Bidding on a lock of John Lennon's hair stands at $12,000 at Heritage Auctions, with the auction due to close on February 20.
It comes from the collection of Klaus Baruck, a barber in Hamburg who cut Lennon's hair in preparation for his role as Gripweed in Richard Lester's film How I Won the War (1967).

Lennon wore a pair of round eyeglasses for the first time during filming, a look he continued long after the shoot ended.
The auction house comments: "To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest lock of Lennon's hair ever sold at auction.
"It can be dated to a specific time and location and has been in the collection of the original owner for all these nearly 50 years.
"This haircut took place just a month after the release of the legendary Revolver album."
The hair is sold alongside an autographed call sheet for the film dating to September 6, 1966. It's signed: "John Lennon/ oh yes".
