Lennon's £45k Coat

By Sherna Noah

A psychedelic jacket made for John Lennon in 1967 is expected to fetch a mind-blowing £45,000 at auction.

It has Rolling Stones connections as well as a Beatles link as it was handpainted by Mick Jagger's brother Chris. But even that will be dwarfed by the £100,000 expected for a rare guitar played by George Harrison.

George owned the Australian-built Maton MS500 Mastersound in 1963.

And Lennon's "favourite" grey shirt is expected to sell for more than £8,000.

The star gave the shirt to a girl fan in 1963 to keep her warm after she spilled a drink on her dress.

He told her it was his favourite but said: "You keep it."

The items are among 300 lots at a pop auction at Air Studios in London on November 30.
