John Lennon's childhood home has sold for almost half a million pounds - despite going on the market for just £150,000.
The property at 9 Newcastle Road in Wavertree, Liverpool, where the Beatles singer/songwriter lived from his birth in 1940, went for £480,000 at auction in the Cavern Club.
An anonymous American fan of the Fab Four placed the winning bid over the phone, exceeding by far the guide price set at between £150,000 and £250,000.
A tie which belonged to John Lennon fetched more than £3,000 when it went under the hammer at the Beatles 22nd Annual Memorabilia auction.
The black knitted tie was discovered by Joyce McWilliams, 66, who found it, with some rare signed postcards, when she was clearing out her house.
Mrs McWilliams, who was handed the tie by Lennon himself at Liverpool's Cavern Club, got £3,627 for the item which was one of hundreds of lots which went up for auction on Saturday.
A rare jacket once owned by Beatles star John Lennon is to go under the hammer.
Dating from the late 1960s, the teal blue jacket, worn by the musician, is expected to sell for between £8,000 and £12,000 when it goes up for auction this afternoon.
Lennon left the jacket at his English home when he moved to America in 1971 and passed it on to friend Jo Jo Johns, who cleared out the star's house.
Ms Johns was personal assistant to the Beatles and worked at the group's offices at 3 Savile Row in central London from 1968 to 1975.
In the early 1970s she gave the jacket to her friend, Anthony Goddard, in Leicestershire.
