A "significant lock" of John Lennon's hair is set to be sold at auction in the US.
Rolling Stone reports that the lock is up for auction online via Dallas-based company Heritage Auctions, with bidding closing on February 20. The current highest bid is $12,000 (£8,000).
According to the sales description, the lock - thought to be the "largest lock of Lennon's hair" ever sold at auction - was trimmed in September 1966 during the filming of Richard Lester-directed movie How I Won The War. Lennon appeared as Musketeer Gripweed in the film.
