People say money cannot buy love, but it at least can buy a piece of history. Approvingly, John Lennon memorabilia valued by Cooper Owen auctioneer at more than $2 million was being sold in London Thursday. The legend's collections among others include youthful paintings and handwritten lyrics, jackets, eyeglasses and even furniture.
Above all memorabilia being auctioned, a handwritten lyric sheet for "All You Need is Love" used by Lennon during a television performance by The Beatles in 1967 was sold for 600,000 pounds ($1.04 million). Identity of the buyer isn't revealed. Aside, a military-style tunic worn by Lennon that inspired the Beatles' famous "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" record cover fetched 100,000 pounds. Also there was a pair of Lennon's trademark round wire spectacles that sold for 55,000 pounds.
