Beatles and John Lennon items to be made available as NFTs
John Lennon’s eldest son, Julian Lennon, has decided to offer several items that belonged to the Beatles or his father for sale as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Each NFT will be accompanied by a narration by Julian and physical images of the item.
Handwritten notes, guitars, a coat and a black cape worn by John Lennon are some of the objects that will be auctioned soon. But beware, it won’t be possible to actually acquire them, at least not physically. These pieces of John Lennon and Beatles history will only be available as NFTs. Julian will retain all of the physical items. In addition to the non-fungible token, the person will receive images and a narrative of the item’s history.
The NFT of Paul McCartney’s handwritten notes for the song “Hey Jude” is expected to fetch the most at the sale. Its starting price is $30,000 (around P1.5 million), but bids are expected to reach more than double that. The sale also includes NFTs of the Afghan coat worn by John Lennon in the TV movie “Magical Mystery Tour” and three Gibson guitars given to Julian by his father.
A portion of the proceeds from the NFT sale will be donated to Julian’s White Feather Foundation. The auction will take place on Feb. 7 online at Julien’s Auctions. DC
