A lock of John Lennon’s hair that was snipped as he prepared for a film role has sold for $35,000.
Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said Saturday that the 4-inch (10-centimeter) lock of hair was purchased by Paul Fraser, a United Kingdom-based memorabilia collector.
A German hairdresser kept a tuft of Lennon’s hair after giving him a trim before the Beatle started filming How I Won the War, a dark comedy released in 1967. The movie follows the World War II misadventures of British troops led by an inept commander.
