Welcome to another [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beatles[/lastfm] Wednesday! Time for a pop quiz: What do you get when you combine a poster, a handwritten letter and a decayed tooth with a cavity?
Usually you don’t get much, but when the items belong to the Beatles you get some big sellers!
Some oddball items have sold at auction, and they include:
A poster made by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Lennon[/lastfm] when he held his infamous bed-in with Yoko Ono that reads “Bed Peace,” sold yesterday at Christie’s auction house to an anonymous telephone bidder for $154,000.
The placard was made by Lennon when he held his week-long bed-in in Montreal in 1969
The letter by[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Paul McCartney[/lastfm] offering an audition for the position of drummer went for $55,412, shattering the $11,000 estimate.
And as you might have already heard, one of John Lennon’s molars was sold to a Canadian dentist for $31,200 at auction!
