Beatles- Pair of rare John Lennon news stand hoarding posters from December 1980
A pair of very rare newspaper hoarding posters announcing the terrible news surrounding John Lennon's death. Poster 1 "John Lennon Shot Dead" is in good condition with only a few folds/creases (The V&A has a copy of this in it's collection). Poster 2 "The Twisted Mind of Lennon's Killer" has some age discolouration around the central fold and a rust stain from the original metal hoarding mesh that had displayed it (I don't think that even the V&A has a copy of this one). In both cases I feel any ageing marks / creases only add to their authenticity and history. Both have been safely stored in an art portfolio these last 37 or so years and not exposed to sunlight.
Would prefer to sell as a pair to a genuine collector but will sell separately if necessary. The item "Beatles- Pair of rare John Lennon news stand hoarding posters from December 1980" is in sale since Wednesday, July 26, 2017.
