An assortment of Beatles souvenirs, including outfits worn by John Lennon and handwritten notes by Paul McCartney, will be featured in a new digital auction.
Lennon’s son Julian Lennon has announced the start of the auction for items that will be sold as non-fungible chips (NFT) as part of the Lennon Connection: The NFT Collection.
NFTs are sold as audio-visual collectibles, with Mr. Lennon’s story along with images of the articles.
In addition to some guitars donated to Mr. Lennon by his father, other items on auction include John Lennon’s magical Afghan coat and the black cape he wore in the movie Help!
He also auctioned off NFT notes for the well-known hit song Hey Jude Notes by Paul McCartney.
“Through this NFT collection, I can give exclusive access to special items that I cherish and pass on to my father’s legacy in a new way,” Mr Lennon told Rolling Stone.
The items are sold in partnership with Julien’s auction house and Yellow Heart NFT.
“You own a piece of music history as Julian Lennon unveils his inaugural digital exhibit, with his private collection of John Lennon and Beatles memorabilia, including Paul McCartney’s rare handwritten notes from ‘Hey Jude,'” in a press release on the site.
The online auction will take place on February 7, although bidding and registration have begun.
Some of the proceeds will go to Julian Lennon’s White Feather Foundation.
