A piece of paper signed by the Beatles is set to fetch a four figure sum at auction today. It'll go under the hammer along with a microphone used by the band at Abbey Road studios at a sale in Northamptonshire.
A full set of Beatles autographs on the one sheet of paper has added rarity value and the condition is very good too.
The signatures are set to be estimated at £1000-1500 and the microphone £400-600.
The house where John Lennon learned to play guitar is up for auction today. The property, on Blomfield Road in Liverpool, was once owned by his mother Julia. Although Lennon lived mostly with his Aunt Mimi nearby, he was a frequent visitor.
