A typed letter to Her Majesty The Queen from John Lennon, with handwritten "Your Majesty" and signed "With Love John Lennon" in black felt pen. The letter is on Bag Productions letterhead and states in part, "I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing." The letter was sent in the late 1960s during the Nigerian civil war. This is believed to be the first draft for Lennon's letter to the Queen, which was not sent because of the smudges.
This item will be shipped from Liverpool, United Kingdom, by Hedley's shipping services.
