A broken pair of sunglasses by John Lennon, on auction, 165.000 euros

A broken pair of sunglasses, which the Beatles singer John Lennon, has ever left it in the back seat of a car, made on Friday during an auction at Sotheby’s in London, 165.000 euros, reports the news website, Citizen.

The glasses were in the possession of Alan Herring, driver of the Beatles members, Ringo Starr and George Harrison.

“In the summer of 1968, I took it to John, along with Ringo and George on Ringo’s Mercedes to take them to the office, to release, to let Herring know in a statement released by Sotheby’s.

“When John is out of the car and stepped out, I saw that he had his sunglasses on the back seat and had to leave, and one of the legs, it was broken. I asked him if I had the glasses and had to make up for it.” According to the Herring, found in the singer, it is not necessary, and in the end, the driver would never make it.

Herring was sold at auction for more Beatles-related memorabilia, such as a hippieketting, and George Harrison.
