The jackets worn by The Beatles in their 1965 film Help! are expected to fetch up to $115,000 when they are put up for auction next month. Taken from director Richard Lester’s private collection, the iconic items of clothing will go under the hammer at Omega Auctions in March, and staff at the auction house have estimated that they will attract offers of between $82,000 and $115,000 when the bidding opens.
Auctioneer Paul Fairweather said: “As Beatles clothing goes, these have got to be amongst the Holy Grail for any Beatles collector. They feature on one of their most recognizable album covers and I have a feeling these could really fly off the block.”
