John Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon Barclay's Bank Signature Reference Card
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,762.50
Barclay's Bank of New York signature card for "John Lennon" ("10") and "Yoko Ono Lennon" ("9") was used by the bank to verify their signatures for their checking account. As was standard practice, the authorized signatures of each, as provided by John and Yoko on the form filled out by the Lennons to open their checking account, were cut from the form by the bank, and taped to the signature verification card for future reference. A "Sig Confirmed" ink stamp intentionally marries the signature cuts to the reference card, which is then taped to the card. When checks came to the bank drawn on the Lennons' account, Barclay's referenced these signatures for verification. In addition to being a very unusual John Lennon and Yoko Ono signed item, this is a particularly interesting document as it presents a very rare "Yoko Ono Lennon" signature. We believe this signature card dates from the very early 1970s, shortly after John and Yoko were married. On the reverse is the Lennons' business address. This is a very interesting and unique item signed by both John and Yoko Lennon. Despite some general wear from use, the card has a very impressive appearance and is in overall Very Good to Excellent condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,762.50
