544: JOHN LENNON JACKET
JOHN LENNON JACKET - tailored double breasted black dinner jacket owned and worn by John Lennon during 1975. John donated this jacket along with many other items to the WFIL charity auction which was held over the weekend of the 16th to 18th May 1975 in Philadelphia. John attended as a special guest and the jacket still has the original lot number tag attached. Accompanying the jacket are an original flyer advertising the event and a signed letter from the president of the WFIL (Jerry Hunton) in which the jacket is mentioned. The same jacket was apparently worn at some the 'Bag One' exhibitions in the early 1970's.
