John Lennon's glasses sold at auction

John Lennon's sunglasses sold at auction
A pair of John Lennon's "granny" sunglasses have been snapped up at auction by a British collector.

Lennon was given copper cups in return
Auction organisers have refused to divulge how much the gold-rimmed glasses went for but they were expected to fetch £1 million.
Lennon wore them on one of the last Beatles concerts during the band's 1966 tour of Japan.
He later gave them to his Japanese interpreter.
The band were at the height of their fame at the time, following Lennon's highly publicised "bigger than Jesus" comment.

Translator Junishi Yore removed the lenses on the day Lennon was shot dead outside his New York apartment on December 8, 1980.
Interest in the pair was sparked from potential buyers as far afield as the United States, Russia, Japan and Europe.
John Warner, sales and marketing director of the specialist musical memorabilia, said: "We can't reveal the figure because of a confidentiality agreement with the buyer."
The glasses came to the website from a US collector as part of a larger collection.
