The front door from Paul McCartney's childhood home is among the highest valued lots in the 22nd Annual Liverpool Beatles Auction, which will be held on August 24.

The door has not been given an estimate, but last sold at auction earlier this year for £5,060 ($7,780) to leading Beatles dealer Tracks.

The door previously belonged to 20 Forthlin Road, Allerton, Liverpool, which is now a National Trust property. It was rescued from salvage by Glen South, a local musician, when he heard that the house's owners were refurbishing it in 1964.

McCartney came and went from 20 Forthlin Road from 1955 to 1964. Several Beatles songs are believed to have been composed there, including Love Me Do and When I'm Sixty-Four.

Also starring in the sale is a set of Beatles autographs that were obtained on September 20, 1967 on the set of the Magical Mystery Tour at RAF West Mailing. Including signatures from other cast members, the set will sell with a £5,000-6,000 ($7,728-9,274) estimate.

Two never before seen photographs of the Beatles in the Cavern Club, which have been signed by Paul, Ringo and George, with Paul signing for John in his absence, will sell for £3,250-3,750 ($5,023-5,796) each.

On August 10, Heritage Auctions sold the lowest-numbered copy of the White Album, A000001, for $35,000, while an alternate cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band made $32,500.

John Lennon's Sgt. Pepper-style coat will sell for an estimated £10,000 ($15,500) at Hansons Auctioneers later this month.
