John Lennon left his iconic round-rimmed glasses in the back of Ringo Starr's Mercedes in the summer of 1968. This caused Beatles’ former chauffeur Alan Herring to get it in his possession. They were sold to an unnamed bidder at a Sotheby’s auction in London on Friday for £137,500!
“When John got out of his car I noticed that he’d left these sunglasses on the back seat and one lens and one arm had become disconnected. I asked John if he’d like me to get them fixed for him. He told me not to worry they were just for the look! He said he’d send out for some that fit. I never did get them mended I just kept them as they were as John had left them,” said herring.
