The leader of the British rock group the Beatles, John Lennon last letter has been sold at auction
at a price way higher than expected.

The letter which the author and graphic artist wrote just hours before his murder, went for $64k by a memorabilia collector or a fan who choose to remain anonymous.

The British singer and songwriter wrote the letter that was addressed to his accountant on December 8, 1980, It is the same day he was killed by Mark David Chapman.

The auction house was expecting to get between $30k to $50k for the letter which has been on an online auction for 17 days, however, the auctioneers raise the price to$63,750.

The British musician listed in his letter three people he chose to vote for the annual meeting of the Beatles corporation, and then he signed it before he sent it to Barry Nichols, his accountant.

The accused of Lennon’s murder met him earlier in the evening, when the singer had signed a copy of his album Double Fantasy for him outside of his home, then he shot him five times later at night, because the Beatles were more popular than Jesus, as he claimed.
