DALLAS (AP) -  A lock of hair snipped from the head of John Lennon as the
Beatle prepared for a film role is expected to sell for $10,000 at a Dallas
auction scheduled for Feb. 20.

Heritage Auctions said in a news release Monday that the 4-inch lock was
collected by a German hairdresser who trimmed Lennon’s hair in 1966.

Heritage says auction will include other rare items linked to The Beatles, such
as a signed photograph of all four members.

Memorabilia from other artists such as Elvis Presley and Led Zeppelin also will
be auctioned.
