“Substantial” Lock of John Lennon’s Hair Can Be Yours for $12K
Back in 1966, John Lennon had his hair trimmed to do the movie "How I Won the War", and now someone is auctioning off a "substantial lock" from that cut. So in other words, the hair is closer to a handful than a few strands.
The current high bid is $12,000, which seems ridiculous because frankly, a clump of hair is one of the grossest mementos you could have from a person.
Nonetheless, a hairdresser apparently kept the lock for nearly 50 years before deciding to auction it off. If you're interested, the bidding will remain open until the 20th of this month. Head over to Heritage Auctions to place a bid.
A few years ago one of Lennon's teeth sold for $30,000. The man behind this is reportedly trying to extract DNA from the tooth to clone Lennon. He says, "If scientists think they can clone mammoths, then John Lennon could be next." -JohnLennonTooth.com.
