A Day In The Life sold again
On 27 August 1992 Lennon's handwritten lyrics were sold by the estate of Mal Evans in an auction at Sotheby's London for £56,600 ($100,000). The lyrics were put up for sale again in March 2006 by Bonhams in New York. Sealed bids were opened on 7 March 2006 and offers started at about $2 million. It was never disclosed how much it went for, or if it was sold at all. The lyric sheet has now been auctioned again by Sotheby's. It was purchased by an anonymous American buyer who paid £810,000 (around $1,2 million). The lyric sheet is written on both sides.
