Dallas: A lock of John Lennon's hair that was snipped as he prepared for a film role, has sold for $35,000.
Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said on Saturday that the 4-inch (10-centimeter) lock of hair was purchased by Paul Fraser, a UK-based memorabilia collector.
A German hairdresser kept a tuft of Lennon's hair after giving him a trim before the Beatle started filming 'How I Won the War', a dark comedy released in 1967. The movie follows the World War II misadventures of British troops led by an inept commander.
The hair was just one of several Beatles-related items on auction.
A photograph of the iconic band signed by all four members went for $42,500.
And a sealed copy of the band's 'butcher' cover for the 'Yesterday and Today' album went for $125,000.
