Late Beatle John Lennon‘s “Give Peace a Chance” hadwritten lyrics are to be sold at Christies pop memorabilia auction this July.

The London auction house says that the lyrics, along with never-seen-before photos were given to 16-year old writer Gail Renard in 1969, when Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their Montreal ‘bed-in.’

According to BBC News, John Lennon gave Renard a few mementos of the week she spent with them, including the famous song lyrics, telling her “one day they will be worth something”.

The collection is estimated to go for around £300,000 at the rock and pop
auction on July 10.
