The jacket worn by John Lennon in the 1965 film HELP! will be on the auction block at Sotheby’s. The bidding for the former Beatles‘ jacket currently falls between $50k – $70k and is described rather eloquently as “Black wool jacket with silk lining; interior lining bearing the label of D. A. Millings & Son. Scattered wear consistent with age and use. One small hole to lining, otherwise in very good condition” on the auction site.
