So what would you do if you had 2 million dollars laying around? Apparently someone is going to buy John Lennon’s glasses, I could think of some much better ideas then that!
” The prized items went on sale on Thursday on music memorabilia website www.991.com. The last pair of Lennon’s glasses sold in 2002 are insured for $2 million.
The former Beatle gave a pair of gold rimmed glasses to Japanese translator Junishi Yore during the band’s 1966 tour of Japan. The glasses come without the lenses as Yore took them out as a sign of respect when he heard of Lennon’s murder in 1980 – as tradition dictates in Japan.
The glasses come with a note from Yore, which reads, “He (Lennon) gave me this “¦ very nice man. Lenses removed when he die.” The auction closes at the end of the month.
What do you do with a pair of $2 million dollar glasses that have no lenses? And the only thing confirming authenticity is a note from someone who claims they were John Lennon’s? I’d have more confidence buying something out of Paris Hilton’s trashcan.”
