Unique Rock Collectible Uncovered

Auction houses have a pretty good fix on what certain items are likely to bring, but a recent discovery could prove challenging to predict a top bid for - if it can be proven to be what the furniture dealer that discovered it believes it is.  The dealer claims the chair, which was found among a lot of items he had purchased, had photos of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr attached to the seats and hair clippings he has confidence came from the members of the Beatles.  The four had been photographed at Horne Brothers Barbershop in Liverpool getting trims in 1963.  The dealer thinks the chair and authenticating clippings will bring in $15,000.  That pales in comparison with the high six-figure total Sotheby's expects to fetch Friday (6/18) for the handwritten lyrics John Lennon scrawled for A Day In The Life, but it does seem like a bargain for one of the more unique and potentially more useful Rock collectibles to come along in quite some time.
