JOHN LENNON NOTE AND FINGERPRINTS
A piece of paper handwritten in black felt-tip ink by the Beatle reading in full "John Lennon/2nd August 1965./This is the best I could do/David! I used pen ink I/hope it counts! Good luck!"; along the top margin are Lennon's five fingerprints in the same black ink. Collected on a scavenger hunt, Lennon likely knew 'David' personally to do this for him.
11 x 9 inches
Please note this paper has been folded, is somewhat stained and was once affixed to a red page (likely in a scrapbook).
