What are the most expensive items of Beatles memorabilia?

The Beatles are still the world’s most sought after band when it comes to dealing with memorabilia items. 90 percent of enquiries we deal with are regarding the band’s memorabilia pieces, from autographs and pictures, to signed albums, clothing and letters. Unfortunately, there are lots of fake items, or mass duplicated copies that are being passed around.

Our team members are experts in spotting fakes and duplicates which allows us to only deal with authentic items of memorabilia - the more unique and rare the better!

Many people ask us what the most expensive items of Beatles memorabilia cost, which is an interesting question, as each passing year the value increases, as there are no more memorabilia items being created, and the ones that are out there are another year older, meaning that the most expensive pieces now may be dwarfed in the near future. However so far, the five most expensive items can be found underneath:

5) John Lennon’s talisman necklace

This is the necklace that John Lennon was wearing on the cover of the 1968 album Two Virgins with Yoko Ono. The necklace was bought by a private collector in 2005 for $528,000.

4) A Gibson SG guitar that was played by both George Harrison and John Lennon

The guitar was used by George Harrison on the Beatles Revolver album and John Lennon also used the same guitar on the Beatles White album.

The guitar sold for $567,500 on Friday 17th December in 2004 and was bought by an anonymous bidder at Christie's auction house.

3) A hand painted Beatles Sgt. Pepper's drum skin

The hand painted drum featured in the centre of the album cover: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club.

This piece went for a staggering $1.1 million dollars in 2008

2) John Lennon's Steinway piano

The piano that John Lennon wrote Imagine on was sold for $2.1 million dollars to George Michael in an auction in 2000.

George bought the piano so that it wouldn’t end up in storage, and people would be able to see it.

1) John Lennon's hand painted Rolls Royce Phantom V

The car was sold by Sotheby's to Canadian businessman Jim Pattison in 1985 for $2.23m.

Lennon had his matt black overall Rolls Royce repainted with 'psychedelic' scrolls and flowers by J.P. Fallon Limited.
