John Lennon and Paul McCartney were part of The Beatles and made their mark in the history of the music industry. Hours before John Lennon’s murder, he wrote a letter which turned out to be his very last.
According to TMZ, the typed letter is now being auctioned. It was personally signed by him on December 8, 1980 — the day he was shot and killed outside his NYC home. This is believed to be the last legal doc with his autograph.
John sent it to his accountant, Barry Nichols, and it lists 3 people to whom John gave his proxy to vote at an annual meeting for the Beatles corporations. It was set to take place 9 days later.
The letter is expected to fetch between $30k and $50k. This is a realistic price as his last autograph sold for $100k. Gotta Have Rock and Roll is in charge of the letter auction, which opens Wednesday. We’ll have to see how much it will end up being sold for.
