John Lennon Christmas card up for $15k auction
The festive note was penned by the late Beatles legend in 1968 for music producer Tony Cox, and the former couple's daughter, Kyoko Cox.
LONDON - A John Lennon-penned Christmas card to his wife Yoko Ono's ex Tony Cox in 1968 is up for sale for $15,000.
The festive note was penned by the late Beatles legend - who was shot dead in Manhattan, New York, in December 1980 at the aged 40 - in 1968 for music producer Tony Cox, and the former couple's daughter, Kyoko Cox.
The card, which is being sold on MomentsInTime.com, is believed to be referring to Ono - who was married to Cox from 1962 to 1969 - moving out.
It reads: "Dear Tony, we took most of the stuff I think ... if we picked up anything of yours - or something you need (don't panic!). We'll put it back or send it depending where you are. Hope it's o.k. there - it sounds it.
"Merry Xmas etc
"John and Yoko (sic)"
Another page of the note sees Lennon asking Cox where the mastertapes of a 1968 concert One performed are, and two of her short films.
He writes: "We can't find them."
In the part addressed to Kyoko, the card reads: "To Dear Kyoko, A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, lots of love and kisses, John and mommy."
In February 2016, a four-inch lock of Lennon's hair sold for $35,000 at auction.
The Imagine hitmaker's tresses were chopped off prior to his 1967 movie role in How I Won the War.
What's more, his Rolls Royce Phantom V once sold for $2.23 million and lyrics to Beatles hit All You Need is Love fetched $1.25 million.
