Hi Dave....

Wow..interesting !!! I'm wondering how much it will actually go for. It's too bad it has to be sold, being the packrat spirit , I am, I would of hung on to it for all eternity ! I wonder if any other of John's personal or musical items will be auctioned off by Christies as well, or thaqt was the only thing ?! Thankyou for sharing !
